Key employment issues for companies doing business in Korea and the UK


We are running an Employment Roundtable to explore some of the most significant issues companies face doing business in the UK and Korea. This interactive Roundtable is aimed at UK companies working, or planning to work, in Korea and at Korean companies active or interested in the UK. The very different working environments, cultural approaches, and employment rules in the UK and Korea throw up a myriad of issues that can confound even the most sophisticated of businesses.
