    • 조회수 : 3,250
  • Organization : Gangnam-gu Office, the Office of Court Administration
  • Regulation : Guidelines on Deposit Application for Foreigners
•Backgrounds: Company Q, a job placement agency, opened its branch in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, in December 2011, and was going to initiate its business to help Korean job seekers find works in foreign companies, and foreign-invested companies in Korea find qualified workers. However, the company needed to be registered in the local government under the Employment Security Act to provide fee-charging job placement services.

•Main Issue: Company Q had three registered executives, but two of them were non-standing members who resided in Japan. Gangnam-gu Office requires foreign executives to submit foreign registration numbers when registering companies as job placement agencies that charge fees. However, Company Q couldn't be registered as such because those non-standing executives did not have foreign registration numbers.
