Abstract

한국 정부를 포함한 많은 정부가 근로자의 일·생활 균형을 강화하고 노동시장의 성평등을 촉진하기 위한 방안으

규범 환경에 따라 오히려 전통적인 성역할을 굳히거나 일과 가족 간의 갈등을 심화시킬 수도 있다. 이 글에서는

부성휴가(ear-marked paternity leave)와 같은 가족정책을 도입하는 것이 유연근로제의 원래 목적을 달성하

Many governments, including the Korean government, are considering flexible work arrangements as a way to enhance work-life balance and promote gender equality in the labor market. However, depending on the working culture and the sex education environment where the system is to be introduced, the flexible working system may strengthen the traditional sex role or deepen the conflict between work and family. This article cites European and American sources to explain why this can happen. We also want to clarify why it is essential to reduce the working hours and to introduce family policies such as quota-leave, to achieve the original purpose of the flexible work system.
