In addition to other campus services and resources, GMU Korea provides a competitive benefits package that includes insurance and leave.
GMU Korea will provide a comprehensive medical plan provided by the Korean National Health Insurance Service. The employee and the employer will each contribute 50% to this plan.
Per Korean law, employees will contribute a percentage (approximately 4.5%) of their salary to the Korean pension system. This amount is also matched by the employer (approximately 9% of monthly salary). The employee is eligible to withdraw his or her pension when leaving the country.
The employee will accrue an amount equal to 8% of each monthly base salary as severance pay. The employee must be employed by GMU Korea at least one full employment year to be eligible to receive a severance payout. Severance is paid at the end of each contract period (equivalent to an additional one month’s salary per year).
Employees can use one day of leave for every full month worked during their first year. Once an employee has worked for 80% of his/her first full year, s/he is entitled to use 15 days of annual leave the following year.
GMU Korea provides five sick days per year for personal illness or immediate family care. If a sickness or injury is job related, the National Industrial Accident Insurance Compensation Act will apply. There is no reimbursement for unused sick leave.
Housing Provided (For Overseas Faculty)
A private, rent-free, furnished apartment is provided for overseas faculty. Types of housing include 1- to 3-bedroom apartments within 5 to 20 minute walking distance from campus.
