1 in 5 S. Korean Women Quit Job after Maternity Leave: Survey

A new survey shows that one out of five South Korean women are not returning to work after maternity leave, mainly due to difficulties juggling work and motherhood.

The Korea Population, Health and Welfare Association on Wednesday announced the result of its online survey conducted by pollster Macromill Embrain, which questioned 400 men and women nationwide, aged 20 to 49, between November 24th and December seventh. 

Data showed 92-point-five percent of men returned to work after paternity leave compared to 81 percent of women. 

The women who quit working for good after maternity leave were asked why they did not return to work and nearly 70 percent said their working conditions were not compatible with childrearing. 

Around 18 percent of them said they were concerned about unfair treatment by companies for using the leave, while around 16 percent cited personal reasons.
