Vietnamese guest workers get updated on RoK's law

The Vietnam EPS (Employment Permit System) Labour Management Office, in collaboration with the Support Centre for Foreign Workers in Uijeongbu city of Gyeonggi province, held a meeting on April 23 with Vietnamese labourers working in the city and surrounding areas to update them on the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s law.

As the RoK remains an attractive market for Vietnamese workers, the office has considered law popularisation meetings a regular activity to strengthen the management work and provide support for Vietnamese labourers to ensure they follow their signed contracts and abide by the host country’s law.

Lee Sang-gu, Director of Uijeongbu city's Support Centre for Foreign Workers, said that the centre is always ready to support and give advice to foreign workers in general and Vietnamese in particular on issues directly related to the interests of workers such as wages, living and working conditions, and law observance, thus helping them quickly integrate into the community and have a stable life.

According to the Korean Ministry of Employment and Labour, the country has a plan to employ about 110,000 migrant workers this year to work at farms and factories, but some businesses believed even more will be needed to keep them running.

Vietnam set a target of sending 10,000 workers to the RoK in 2023. Since the beginning of this year, 3,600 labourers have been sent to the East Asian country under the EPS programme.

Last year, Vietnam sent nearly 9,000 workers to the RoK under the EPS programme, out of 70,000 set for 16 selected countries.
