CORRECTED-S.Korean court orders Kia Motors to pay about $374 mln to workers

(Corrects figure in headline, paragraph 1 to about 420 bln won ($374 mln), not 400 bln won ($356 mln)

SEOUL, Aug 31 (Reuters) - A South Korean court on Thursday ruled against Kia Motors, ordering the automaker to pay around 420 billion won ($374 million) in unpaid wages.

Kia Motors’ workers filed a lawsuit in 2011, claiming unpaid wages of 659 billion won. In 2014, they lodged an additional wage lawsuit.

The workers said regular bonuses should be included as part of a base pay used to calculate overtime, compensation for unused annual leave, severance pay and other payments. ($1=1,124.3000 won) (Joyce Lee and Hyunjoo Jin; Editing by Stephen Coates)
