NACF Accused of Violating Equal Employment LawThe Women Link in Korea accused the National Agricutural Cooperatives Federation (NACF) in the Seoul District Prosecutor's Office(SDPO), on May 13, of violating the law of equal employment of men and women.
The Women Link insisted, in its accusation sent to SDPO, that NACF actually engaged in sexual discriminaton by forcing female workers to quit their jobs during restructuring.
The Link added that 91.5 percent of the 752 married couples employed with NACF who were forced to resign last year are women.
It also said that the NACF recently re-employed 1056 out of about 1900 woman workers who took early retirement. They alleged that the NAAC's recent moves is obviously discriminating behavior towards employing female workers, which they pay lower wages.
However, the NACF explained that its actions are inevitable measures to include couples in temporary layoffs to reduce the number of families that might lose the means of earning a living.
