1. Workplace anti-bullying law takes effect

기사요약: 직장 내 괴롭힘 금지법이 7월 16일 시행됐다. 이 법이 시행됨에 따라 사용자나 근로자가 지위나 관계 우위를 이용해 다른 근로자에게 업무상 적정 범위를 넘어선 신체적, 정신적 고통을 주거나 근무 환경을 악화시키는 행위에 대해 누구든 사업주에 신고할 수 있으며, 사업주는 조사를 벌여 피해자 보호와 가해자 징계 등의 조치를 해야된다.


[1] A new law aimed at preventing harassment in the workplace took effect in South Korea on Tuesday, bringing the widespread but overlooked issue of bullying at work into the legal domain.

*harassment: 괴롭힘
*took effect: 시행되다
*widespread: 만연
*overlook: 간과

[2] A revised law on labor standards, commonly called the workplace anti-bullying law, went into effect after a six-month grace period.

*grace period: 유예 기간

[3] Under the new law, workplace harassment is defined as an act of incurring physical or mental suffering or a worsening of the work environment by employers or workers using their status or power to behave beyond the scope of working norms.

*incur: 초래하다, 입다
*beyond: 넘어서
*scope: 범위
*norm: 규범

[4] If workplace harassment is reported, employers should immediately investigate it and take proper action, such as preventing victims from working with perpetrators in the same place.

*perpetrator: 가해자, 범인

[5] If retaliatory or discriminatory measures are taken against victims or those who report abusive conduct, employers could face a maximum three-year jail term and a fine of up to 30 million won ($25,423). But the law does not stipulate the punishment for a perpetrator.

*retaliatory: 보복
*discriminatory: 차별
*stipulate: 규정하다
