Many companies offer probationary training before joining. Even in this case, the company is expected to pay a certain level of wages because it has worked. However, some bus companies in Gyeonggi-do have reported that they are not receiving this money even after driving for 10 hours a day. Our reporter went to the field for a reason and decided to start an investigation in Gyeonggi-do.

Reporter Lee Hyun-jung.


Gyeonggi-do city bus driver A. Last year, I was trained for four weeks before being officially hired by a transportation company.

The first week, I sat next to the driver's seat for 8 hours a day, learned the route, and over the next three weeks, the supervisor drove the bus.

Like the full-time drivers, they operated directly over 14 hours a day, but they did not receive any salary.

[A/Bus driver: I meet the chairman of the union first, and write a pledge to pay for meals instead of a pledge to proceed without compensation during the probation period. During that month, (economically), I'm a bit embarrassed.]

Knight B, who quit work earlier this year because he couldn't stand unfair treatment, reported the company to the Labor Office, but the agreement he had made before training caught his ankle.

[Mr. B. / Ex-Bus Driver: An employee of the Labor Administration brought it and showed it. (I did not sign). But I think this is coercive.]

Even though I worked the same as the articles, I did free work because I wrote an unpaid agreement, but the bus company insists it wasn't working.

[Bus officials: (If you have a hope), you get the consent and use our vehicles to train yourself. If you can't do it in the middle, you just go. If you apply for'I want to work', they report separately (I decide whether or not to hire you)]

But even before you sign a work contract, even if you did the actual work of driving, you get paid. Experts say it is right to do.

[Yujaewon / lawyer, consultant: Did signed a labor contract (the contract) whether the (a key) Whether did the work in subordinate positions under your leadership, but it is important -

in particular former labor contract to exploit the unstable student status It is also necessary to supplement the blind spots of the law so that labor cannot be exploited.

Gyeonggi-do decided to investigate the free labor conditions of trainees for transportation companies in the province.
