Starting a social club: Thorough explanation of laws and permits

In order to open a social club, it is necessary to comply with various laws and regulations, including the Entertainment Business Act, Labor Standards Act, and Personal Information Protection Act. Here, we will explain the main laws and regulations related to the opening of social clubs.

 

Wind management law

The Entertainment Business Law is an abbreviation for the Act on the Regulation of Entertainment Businesses, etc. and the Appropriation of Business Operations. Under the Entertainment Business Law, entertainment businesses require a business license, and operating a business without a business license is prohibited.

Social clubs fall under the category of entertainment business and must obtain a business license. In order to obtain a business license, you must apply and obtain permission from the Public Safety Commission. The application requires documents such as the store's structure, equipment, and the manager's background.

 

 

Labor Standards Act

The Labor Standards Act is a law that establishes minimum standards for working conditions. The Labor Standards Act stipulates working conditions such as working hours, rest periods, holidays, and minimum wages.

Social clubs are subject to the Labor Standards Act, so they must comply with the Labor Standards Act. Specifically, working hours and rest periods must be set appropriately and minimum wages must be paid.

 

 

Privacy Policy

The Personal Information Protection Act is a law that stipulates the handling of personal information. The Personal Information Protection Act requires that personal information be handled appropriately.

Since dating clubs handle customers' personal information, they must comply with the Personal Information Protection Act. Specifically, the acquisition, use, and provision of personal information to third parties must comply with the provisions of the Personal Information Protection Act.

 

 

Other related laws and regulations

 

Importance of legal compliance
