It was later confirmed that a female civil servant in her 40s who worked at the Ministry of Health and Welfare through the Ministry of Employment and Labor made the extreme choice.
The bereaved family raised suspicions that the deceased was subjected to workplace harassment, including verbal abuse from her boss, and demanded an investigation through the National Public Employees’ Labor Union.
On the 23rd, according to the civil service union and the Ministry of Welfare, Mr. A, a civil servant at the Ministry of Welfare, made an extreme choice in late February.
Mr. A, who had worked for 13 years at a branch office of the Ministry of Employment and Labor, came to the Welfare Ministry in October 2021 and decided to take a leave of absence after working for three weeks.
According to the public employee union and the Welfare Ministry, Mr. A had extended his leave of absence from around November 2021 until his death.
However, the bereaved family and the public employee union claim that during the period when Mr. A was transferred to the Welfare Ministry, he was harassed by his boss and decided to take a leave of absence.
A union official told News1, “Mr. A complained of difficulties to his family, saying, ‘I’m anxious to receive a call for reinstatement,'” and claimed, “There was enough reason to suspect foul play.”
The bereaved family plans to ask the police to reopen the investigation based on Mr. A’s cell phone records and hospital treatment records, and the public employee union plans to urge the Welfare Ministry to take a responsible stance.
In response, a Welfare Ministry official said, “Mr. A, who had been on leave for a year, chose to extend his leave to the Human Resources Department,먹튀검증 which asked him whether to extend it, and this happened in February.” “We are investigating the causal relationship and the truth of the bereaved family’s report,” he said.
However, according to the union, the boss, who was named as the perpetrator, has never harassed A.
