3.Matters to Confirm about Private Lodging Administrators

Since the Private Lodging Administrator is required to post a sign in a place where everyone can easily see at each main business office or office, you can confirm whether the operator has been registered or not by checking the sign.

In addition, since a person engaged in the Private Lodging Administration Business is required to carry an "employment certificate," you can confirm whether the operator has been registered. However, the people subject to carrying an employment certificate are those who directly enter the notified housing, work closely with Private Lodging Business Operators or lodgers as an administrator. Therefore, people who only clean the linen, drivers, etc. may not carry the employment certificate, as such people are not required to carry it.
