Gender Discrimination & Sexual Harassment under the Jurisdiction of Labor Relations Commission

Starting May 19, 2022, if an employer displays sexual discrimination in recruitment, hiring, wages, educational opportunities, promotions, or retirement policies, fails to appropriately address the concerns of a victim of sexual harassment, or terminates the employment of or otherwise penalizes a victim who reports sexual harassment, the victim may seek remedy through the Labor Relations Commission.

This change opens up the possibility for the Labor Relations Commission to issue corrective orders to an employer (which may include ordering the employer to cease such discriminatory acts, amend its working terms and conditions under the rules of employment or collective bargaining agreement, or pay out appropriate compensation (of up to three (3) times the amount of damages)).

Failure to comply with finalized corrective order without justifiable grounds may result in an administrative fine of up to KRW 100million.
