Annual Leave based on the Korean Labor Law

Here is a brief information on annual leave under the labor standards act of Korea.

1. The initial leave starts as 15 days.

Once an employee worked for 80% of total working days of the first year, he is entitled to use 15 days’ annual leave during the next one year. If an employee works less than 80% of the total working days, he gets no annual leave at all for the next year.
