Abstract

Tis Comment looks at labor legislation's role in shaping the present state of labor relations in South Korea A brief history of the government's symbiotic relationship with business serves as a backdrop for assessing the current laws. The laws have an employer bias accenluated by the broad administrative oversighit government has over labor relations. More troublesome provisions of the laws are considered in detail. This Comment then turns to recent pro-labor changes in the laws but discusses why labor unions are unlikely to achieve full equality in labor relations at this juncture. In conclusion, this Comment makes suggestions for change based on the premise that labor negotiations should be conducted by the parties on an equal footing.
