Rights of part-timers, temporary workers, and day laborers
Part-timers (workers who work a shorter number of hours per week), temporary workers (workers employed on short-term contracts lasting around two months), and day laborers (workers who are employed for a predetermined period of less than a month) have the same rights as regular staff. They have the right to paid leave if their standard yearly working days are 48 or more and they have been working for at least six months. Even if an employment contract is renewed several times, if it is accepted as a contract without a predetermined employment period the notice of dismissal system applies. Part-timers whose standard working hours exceed 2- hours a week and who are expected to be employed continuously for at least one year are covered by employment insurance.
