 South Korea a state enterprise manager tampered with interview scores refused to recruit female staff sentenced to 4 years.


According to media reports, Park Ki-hyun, president of the Korean Natural Gas Safety Commune, has repeatedly sent the companys personnel department a special message asking them to exclude all female job seekers when recruiting new employees. After the incident was exposed, the prosecution in South Korea immediately launched an investigation into the park and filed a lawsuit with the court.

South Koreas Grand Court recently issued a second-instance verdict in this case. Park Ki-hyun was sentenced to four yearsimprisonment and a fine of 300 million won for violating the law on equal employment between women and men.

According to reports, from January 2015 to May 2016, when the South Korean Natural Gas Safety Commune was publicly recruiting, Park Ki-hyun called five people in charge of recruiting and used his position to modify the interview scores of the applicants. In the first round of qualified candidates, scores of women and men not in military service were tampered with below the passing line. The prosecution investigation found that 31 men failed in the original interview results, but were eventually changed to above the qualified line, while 7 other qualified girls were eliminated. In the judgments of the first and second instance, the court wrote that employing illegal means such as modifying scores to recruit staff would damage the social image of state-owned enterprises and cause extremely bad effects. South Korean netizens applauded the verdict. Some netizens said, Todays verdict reminds companies that discriminate against women in society. If they cant really achieve equality between men and women in the recruitment process according to law, they should accept severe punishment by law.
