The Ministry of Employment and Labor (MOEL) authorities have conducted an investigation concerning the reports that allegedly portrayed the management of WeMakePrice as having been ‘overly bossy’ to their employees.
The MOEL conducted the probe on Jan. 12-16, 2015 at the work sites and learned that there has been no instance of any serious violation of provisions of the competent Labor Law. This was recently disclosed by the management of WeMakePrice.
The MOEL probers, however, pointed out some instances with room for improvement in regard to procedural matters, and recommended corrective measures and preparation and submission of a plan to the MOEL for preventing the recurrence of such incidents in addition to imposition of a fine on the company.
According to the WeMakePrice management, it has become clear that there has been no instance of illegal employee dismissals but that the company has been subjected to undue criticisms that may have dealt suffering damages to the image of the company.
“The company has grown by leaps and bounds, and in the process has recruited employees hastily and we feel that we should have been more careful at the time of hiring new employees,” disclosed President & CEO Park Eun-sang of WeMakePrice. “We are always trying to be fair to everyone and we will continue to maintain this position.”
Meanwhile, WeMakePrice paid overtime allowances to the employees on Feb. 4, 2015 and also completed payment of the fine.
CEO Park stated that he will closely consult with his executives and employees for the improvement of employment method, communication, employee training and consultation with outside advisors.
