Multiple teams of digital forensics experts are to begin work at six regional labor administrations across South Korea to assist in preventing labor violations in the workplace, according to the Korea Bizwire.
Plans introduced on September 10, 2019 plan to use “big data” analysis to narrow down lists of businesses that require further inspection for possible violations. Big data examinations involve the analysis of data sets that are too large to use traditional data-processing methods. Examining large sets of data requires the use of advanced software solutions. This practice is popular with large corporations when they analyze large sets of data produced by customers in order to make business decisions. In this instance, the government hopes the big data analysis will allow for a more efficient labor inspection process and highlight businesses of concern.
Previous inspections by the South Korean government focused on businesses found guilty of violating labor restrictions, while the new program focuses on actively monitoring large businesses deemed most likely to commit violations based on the data analyzed.
The Korean government plans to add additional digital forensics teams and updated software to support continued operations in the future.
