Abstract This study aimed to analyze the working conditions experienced by Chinese construction workers in South Korea, and to suggest measures to improve the conditions as a means of ensuring the efficient utilization of the labor force in the future. The employment management of Chinese construction workers needs to be improved by thoroughly surveying the supply and demand of domestic construction workers and maintaining an appropriate level of employment of foreign workers. It will also be necessary to secure and manage accurate statistics on illegal aliens from a long-term perspective by extending and legalizing the length of stay of those who voluntarily report their status for a certain period. Education and training programs that will enable such workers to improve their Korean language proficiency and acquire certifications can be provided to Chinese construction workers to improve their ability to work, and this is expected to improve the quality of construction and productivity and to prevent safety accidents.
