Not only has there been a growth in the utilisation of non-standard workers in South Korea in recent years, but a qualitative shift has also occurred in the nature of contracting practices. This article attempts to improve understanding of this trend by shedding light on the contradictory nature of the contracting system, while also addressing problems associated with the deployment of an external labour force with fewer employment entitlements on user-firm sites, and the implications of these phenomena for employment practices and workers' rights.
