Vulnerable Social Groups in the Welfare and Labor Sectors—Married Immigrants and Migrant Workers—Gathering Together

- ACRC provides an “Onsite Outreach Program” tailored for Asan-si

 

The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC) is visiting Asan today to organize a place where the Commission can meet with married immigrants, migrant workers, and local residents who are experiencing grievances in the welfare and labor sectors to listen to their difficulties and provide resolutions.

 

< Operating Schedule for Onsite Outreach Program Tailored to the Welfare and Labor Sectors >

Region

Asan, South Chungcheong Province

Time and Date

10:00 - 15:30 Wed. June 28

Place

Main Conference Room, 3rd floor, Onyang 4-dong Administrative Welfare Center

For whom

Multicultural families, migrant workers, and residents experiencing grievances in the welfare and labor sector

 

The Onsite Outreach Program will, in particular, serve as a platform to provide counseling for the grievances experienced by vulnerable social groups, including foreign workers and multicultural families, and listen to their thoughts and opinions.

 

Migrant workers and married immigrants are institutionally marginalized groups, experiencing numerous grievances in the welfare and labor sectors, such as employment permission, health insurance, and emergency welfare support.

 

Accordingly, ACRC plans to establish a foundation for continued cooperation with local ombudsmen, organizations, and institutions in the region to address grievances through onsite meetings while resolving grievances experienced by marginalized groups on the spot.

 

Asan-si established the Asan Multicultural Immigration Plus Center in September 2017, marking the first of its kind in Korea, and has been providing support to multicultural families, foreign workers, international students, and expatriates, offering a one-stop service for a range of government services necessary for their life in Korea.

 

The Asan Multicultural Immigration Plus Center houses the Immigration Office of the Ministry of Justice and the Foreigner Employment Management Team of the Ministry of Employment and Labor. In addition, Korean language education and interpretation and translation services are provided through the operation of the Asan Multicultural Family Support Center and the Asan Migrant Workers Center.

 

ACRC will explore the current state of grievance complaints among multicultural families and foreign workers and discuss cooperative measures for the resolution of the grievance complaints through an onsite meeting with people from the Asan Multicultural Immigration Plus Center.

 

ACRC Deputy Director General for Complaints Deliberation LEE Sang-Don said, “We hope that today's Onsite Outreach Program serves as a platform for onsite communication with local residents and helps resolve grievances experienced by vulnerable social groups in the welfare and labor sectors, such as issues concerning multicultural families and migrant workers. ACRC is committed to visiting vulnerable social groups and regions in blind zones within the welfare and labor sectors to listen to their grievances and difficulties and address them.”
