Korea: Improving the Re-employment Prospects of Displaced Workers

This book discusses how job displacement (involuntary job loss due to firm closure or downsizing) affects many workers over the course of their working lives in Korea. Some workers are more vulnerable than others to this risk and may face long periods of unemployment/inactivity after displacement, particularly if their skills are not well-matched to emerging job opportunities.
