<Anchor> This is a

friendly economic time. Today (the 22nd), I will be with reporter Kim Hye-min. You said that since yesterday, apartment security guards have been limited in the tasks that tenants can ask for?

<Reporter> In

fact, you may not have known until now, but the work that the security guards could do was limited to just the security work. But the reality is that it does a lot more than that.

So, the government revised the Apartment Housing Management Act last year, stipulating in the enforcement decree what security guards can do more exceptionally.

Now there is a clear distinction between what can and cannot be demanded of a security guard.

First of all, in addition to security work, you can clean leaves, remove snow, and separate and dispose of recyclables. In addition, it is only possible to store parcels or mail, and to move a vehicle to prevent a dangerous situation.

Delivering parcels to our front door, or leaving a vehicle to drive even if it is not in a dangerous situation are all prohibited.


Besides what you just explained, are there other things we shouldn't ask the security guards like this about?

<Reporter> As for

me, the security guards usually brought bills and notices to the front of the house. But now, residents have to take it themselves.

Also, since bulky waste is heavy, there are times when we ask you to collect or transport it instead. Now I can't even ask for it.

I can't paint, mowing, or even cleaning the stairs, hallways, and elevators inside the apartment. If you need someone to do this job, you'll need to hire someone else.

Even if you put in the employment contract that you should do something you shouldn't do, it has no effect. Security guards can only do the work stipulated in the Enforcement Decree, and on the contrary, it is possible to reduce the work.


Reporter Kim, by the way, this enforcement ordinance came into effect yesterday. By the way, did you say that reporter Kim visited the scene right after the broadcast ended yesterday?


I went to the apartment right after this broadcast yesterday. It's a large apartment complex located in Apgujeong-dong, Seoul, and the morning rush hour is said to be the most complicated.

This apartment was built a long time ago and there is no underground parking lot, so security guards have been valet parking. But yesterday was the same as in the past. Vehicles were double-parked.

Residents on their way to work have to pull out their cars, and if there are double-parked cars in front, security guards are driving them to get them out. There was even a security guard who opened the door of the occupant's car directly.

There were dozens of vehicle keys that residents always left behind in the guard room, but in fact, I had seen the same thing a few years ago.

But yesterday there was no change.


Reporter Kim, if the law changes like this, it just changes from today.

It's not like we do this, but we give advance notice long before the change.

That would have been plenty of time, but it hasn't changed at all.


Actually, I knew this article from a long time ago.

The management office was saying that this was not a surrogate parking lot.

This is called 'mobile parking' because the vehicle is temporarily removed, but the explanation of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the main ministry, was different.

I asked the Ministry of Home Affairs directly.

"It's too much work other than security work."

I was judging like this.

The management office said work was underway to convert the security guard to a janitor, whether or not it was a restricted job.

The idea is to have separate managers who do tasks that security guards can't do, but in fact, some other apartments have already recontracted the security guards as managers to adjust the scope of work and salaries.

Residents have also found a solution by making them more costly.

If the security guards do additional work beyond their assigned duties, they are also subject to legal sanctions.

The security business license is revoked.

A correction order from the local government is issued to residents, etc.

Failure to comply may result in a fine of up to KRW 10 million.
