SEOUL, Aug 31 (Reuters) - A South Korean court on Thursday ruled against Kia Motors, ordering the automaker to pay around 420 billion won ($374 million) in unpaid wages.
Kia Motors’ workers filed a lawsuit in 2011, claiming unpaid wages of 659 billion won. In 2014, they lodged an additional wage lawsuit.
The workers said regular bonuses should be included as part of a base pay used to calculate overtime, compensation for unused annual leave, severance pay and other payments. ($1=1,124.3000 won) (Joyce Lee and Hyunjoo Jin; Editing by Stephen Coates)
