Giving private duties to employees and making sexual harassment remarks to female employees


The Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (CEO Jung Jae-hoon) employees were caught up in lackadaisical service behavior. Critics say that KHNP may have been convicted for such conducts due lack of security documents, ordering employees to do private duties, sexually harassing female employees, leaving their working areas, driving under the influence of alcohol and verbally harassing employees. 

The ‘Energy Economy Newspaper’ reported on August 27th that KHNP’s audit report was obtained and analyzed, revealing that this kind of behavior was revealed.

According to reports, a total of 12 teams were missing 14 office security regulations before and after June 13 local elections. 
According to KHNP’s ‘Guidelines for Handling Security Practices’, all documents must be kept in a keyed-up box when leaving the office.

It has been revealed that a total of 14 employees left their keys unlocked and left their PC power on when leaving the company. 

A team leader from KHNP used his superior position to ask his subordinates privacy questions and make high-handed remarks during the second half of last year to the first half of this year. Furthermore, he forced his subordinates to drive his car and force them to go drinking. 

In particular, there has been controversy over his remarks that regularly provoke sexual humiliation among unmarried employees. It has been confirmed that he made sexual harassment comments such as “Have you done everythin?” and “Where are you doing it?”. Furthermore, he frequently ordered his subordinates to buy his groceries and return with them to the office. 

There was also mutiny. In April this year, Manager B, who has been working for the company for 30 years, has been caught in a drunken state of alcohol with blood alcohol content of 0.216%. 

Manager B, who went to the police station and office afterwards, has also been caught making offensive to his direct supervisor C after his supervisor said, “You did not contact me from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm without saying anything.”

Two years ago, Manager B was reprimanded by his boss until August 18th for making offensive comments while being in a drunken state.

KHNP’s audit team advised CEO Jung Jae-hoon to “reprimand” team leader A for making “sexual comments” and give a “6-month suspension” to Manager B. 

“We will thoroughly familiarize all employees with the guidelines of action and conduct case-oriented special education so that we can be entrusted by the public with all our efforts in order to prevent such cases from ever happening again,” said an official of KHNP.
