Abstract

1. Background
The purpose of this study is to analyze the job adjustment situation of middle-aged women who are (re-)entering the labor market after long break of job career and may be experiencing conflicts in the process of their settlement in the new workplace. Most of previous studies about female labor market have focused on the causes and the impact of ‘career interruptions’ of female workers pointing out the social and personal problems caused by the withdrawal of married female workers due the burden of housekeeping and child-raising. However, another important issue mexcept preventing such withdrawal of female workers is how to encourage the return or new entrance of middle-aged female workers who are out of the labor market for a while and to help them smoothly settle down in the new working environments. In this respect, this study was conducted to gather basic information on workplace adaptation status of middle-aged (re-) employed women. Based on that information, several policy proposals were suggested as the ways of improving the labor market adaptation process of middle-aged female workers.
2. Main findings
2.1. Research design
The research in this study is based on the Workplace Adjustment Theory that provides a theoretical framework for analyzing the mrelationship between the workplace environments and the job satisfaction of workers. To get concrete information about job adjustment situation of middle-aged (re-) employed women, surveys for individual re-employed women and companies hiring this kind of workers were conducted in October 2012. Individual women surveyed were limited to those who are 35-55 years old, regardless of the presence or absence of past work experience. Companies surveyed were those currently hiring or have experience of hiring these workers. Total number of collected sample was 356 female individuals and 141 companies. In addition to surveys, Focus Group Interviews for middle aged women were undertaken to derive concrete policy suggestions. (The rest is ommitted)
