Changes in employment of female non-regular workers following the measures on non-regular workers in the public sector

Related Document
Frame of Image egular Employment on September 9, 2011, and the Measures to Improve Non-Regular Employment in the Public Sector on November 28, 2011. The key objective of its measures related to non-regular workers in the public sector is to convert some non-regular workers—those fixed-term contract workers who work virtually on a permanent and continuous basis—to open-ended contracts. Most non-regular workers in the public sector are women. Given that gender bias in nonregular work in this sector is relatively serious and continues to worsen, any measures to address the issue would be closely associated with female non-regular workers in the public sector. And because the government’s policies on non-regular employment signal an important future orientation, it is necessary to note whether they are adequately designed with gender sensitivity to make real improvements in female non-regular employment. This study aims to analyze the current status of non-regular and women’s employment in the public sector, and to identify the policy impact on women’s employment as well as areas for improvement.1
