So as per the court case thread....

If I end up out off work do I get all my documents back?

The criminal background check and apostilled degree copy cost me some cash and I would like them back.


Even if I quit Korea will I still get them or do they only allow you to reuse them for another Korean based job?

1 - No.

2- They are GONE.

3- The employer does not have them - immigration does and immigration will NOT return them nor are they required to.

4) you do not need them for another job in Korea provided you have a release from your previous job or have completed your contract or have a valid complaint filed at the labor office when you quit.

My employer gave copies to immigration (or was it the board of education) and returned the originals to me when I quit.
