KEB Hana Bank executives detained over unfair hiring

The prosecution detained two executives at KEB Hana Bank for their alleged involvement in unfair hiring practices on Friday.

The two - surnamed Kang and Song - served as the heads of the human resources division at the bank in 2015 and 2016. They are accused of favoring connected candidates and people from prestigious universities by altering interview scores.

In 2016, for instance, KEB Hana allegedly tampered with interview scores in order to hire graduates from three of the country’s most prestigious universities: Seoul National University, Yonsei University and Korea University.

The Financial Supervisory Service found a total of 13 such unfair cases and referred the investigation result to the prosecutors last month.
