Abstract

Non-standard work constitutes one of the most controversial labor law issues. It is a form of employment developed by the personnel techniques founded on the employment flexibility. This form of employment create instability and inequality and dispense with the employer’'s obligations in the labor law and the social security law. The non-standard worker’'s legal status in Korea is very unstable, but the law rarely provides special protection for it. The Labor Standards Act and the Law for the Protection of Temporary Workers(1998) have provided some protection for non-standard workers under some of their articles. But the content and range of the protective articles are too simple and confined to solve in an efficient way the many legal problems arising from non-standard employment. The basic goal of the regulation of nonstandard employment is to achieve both flexible business operation and employment stability. The real employment need of the enterprise and the choice of the workers must reasonably be accommodated. For this reason, in the first place, amendment must be made to the Labor Standards Act articles dealing with the employment contract period and clarifications must be made regarding the legal effects of illegal use of non-standard employment.
