I donīt have my contract at hand but as I can recall:
i) My contract was signed by the agency, not KAL and not according the korean law. We are not KAL employees thats why we donīt have their benefits according to the local labour law ( such as End of Service bonus or health care). Ask those former expat pilots that tried to sue the company for this reason. They paid a bunch of money to a lawyer and results?
ii) One of the first contract clauses states that we will never join any industrial action, maybe it can be named as "scabs".

Regards

Most of the contracts are now under New Zealand law but tax is being payed in Korea with basically zero benefits in return.

To all who are may be interested.

As you know, Asiana Airline and Korean Airlines has placed the majority of the Expat pilots on unpaid leave due to the events of the current pandemic. While we all understand the difficult times the airlines are experiencing, this does not justify the blatant disregards to fulfilling their contract duties under Korean Labor Law. 4 Months ago, I have been forced to take unpaid leave, however nowhere in my employment contract states this is allowed. I have not received a salary legally owed to me since the forced unpaid leave. As of this writing, I just received notice that Asiana has sent my agency notice that my contract has been terminated with " 2-months notification” as provided in my contract.

I, just like you, am angry at the way we have been treated. When they needed us, we gave them full support without hesitation, but now when we need them, they want to turn the backs on us and throw away like trash. I don't know about you, but this is not acceptable!!!!

I would like be seek a reputable law firm astute in Korean law to seek compensation, but I cannot personally or financially do this alone. I need everyone who has been affected by this to join with me to fight what we are legally owe to us. If you want to join me, you may contact me

Welcome to contract job... they pay you the 2months notice like itís written in the contract ? Not a funny situation but itís correct. You also have the right to leave them with 1 or 2 months notice.

The company is refusing to pay the 2 months salary even its written in the contract (as you so eloquently put it)! I'm not oblivious to the contract world!

Guys, reading this thread I realised that I shouldn't wait for a reply to my CV from Rishworth in the nearest future
