A: Sure it is legal. However whether a company will allow it or not is entirely up to the company, and likely the California laws that protect employees in California will not protect you.

Good luck to you.

A: It may be legal for a US California contract worker to work remotely in South Korea for a total duration of 6 to 8 months, but it depends on the specific circumstances and requirements of the job.

If the contract allows for remote work and does not specify any geographical limitations, and if the worker has legal permission to work in South Korea (such as a work visa or permit), then it may be possible to work remotely from South Korea.

However, it's important to note that there may be tax and legal implications for working in a foreign country, and it's important to consult with an attorney or tax professional who specializes in international employment to ensure compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.
