  • Abstract The Seafarer Act is enacted to protect the relevant rights of seafarers on ocean- going merchant vessels sailing on international lines. However, the seafarer definition is not limited to those working on ocean-going vessels; it also refers to those working on inland waterway or harbor service boats. Although the latter’s work patterns differ from those of the former, they fall under the umbrella term ‘seafarer.’ As long as they are seafarers, the Seafarer Act, a special law promulgated under the Labor Standards Act, shall be applicable to them. Under this condition, the Seafarer Act is inadequate to protect the rights of harbor seamen over time, whose work patterns differ. Gradually, there is a call for making the Labor Standards Act applicable to seafarers working on inland waterway or harbor service boats. However, when looking carefully into the content of the Labor Standards Act, its applicability is not comprehensive, except for some of its labor conditions, because it is not a law tailored to the needs of seafarers. Therefore, while it may seem that harbor seamen are protected by both Acts at the same time, the fact is that both Acts are obviously inadequate. The disputes between harbor seamen and their employers occur repeatedly, resulting in management problems. Currently, the public has started to ask those in authority to review and amend the Seafarer Act. This research aims to provide a reference for amending the Seafarer Act by discussing the above issues and gathering the opinions of people from all walks of life.
