Since publication of The Korean Labor Law Bible in January 2005, five more editions have been
published: the 2nd Edition in September 2006, the 3rd Edition in March 2009, the 4th Edition in May
2011 and the 5th Edition in June 2016. Now, four years later, this is the 6th and most expansive
edition yet. As this and past editions have been made possible by my regular readers who have
bought this book, I would like to express appreciation first to my customers.
I have been giving English lectures on labor law based on the editions of this book for more
than 15 years, and for the last 15 years, have also contributed bilingual articles on labor issues to
the monthly magazine, Labor Law . I hold an MA from Korea University Graduate School of Labor
Studies and the PhD degree on Labor Law at the Graduate School of Ajoo University. This 6th
Edition has been improved by including more practical cases and examples from my own work as
a labor attorney. Also in the expansion are excerpts from my labor law lectures, previous formal
studies of labor law, and bilingual article contributions.
The improvements in this 6th Edition can be seen in both content and structure. Firstly, the
content has been updated with the most recently established and revised labor laws as of October
2020. Secondly, I have inserted into each section labor issues from articles that I have contributed
to the monthly magazine Labor Law . Thirdly, in the Korean version, I have attempted to update,
supplement, and add contents on the advice of my academic advisor, professor Seung-gil Lee,
chairman of the Korean Society of Labor Law, and to whom I am most grateful. Thanks also, Mr.
Gavin C. Farrell, Professor in the Department of English Linguistics of Hankuk University of
Foreign Studies, who reviewed the contents as an English language advisor. This edition has been
reconstructed based upon the author’s extended experience and consequently deeper knowledge,
again grateful for my advisors’ full support and direction.
