    Kirak Ryu | 2014, 21(4) | pp.103~136 | number of Cited : 21
    Abstract PDF
    It is commonly known that mismatch between human capital embodied by the employeeand the demand for skills will lead to an under-utilization of human resources,therefore yielding a negative impact on the macro economy. While policyefforts have been made in terms of equilibrium of labor demand and supply, it seldomattracts attention that structural properties and institutional features of labor marketscan play a role in determining labor market outcomes. This paper has tried to fill thisgap by analyzing how the interplay of labor market institutions and mismatch unfoldsin generating labor market outcomes using the PIAAC data. Results show that the likelihood of working on atypical contract, job-related trainingparticipation, and earnings, when used as measures for human resources placementand rewards, have revealed negative impacts of education and skills mismatches. Inaddition, labor market segmentation, in conjunction with collective bargaining, natureof labor market policy, and generosity of unemployment insurance, aggravatesthe negative effects of mismatches on labor market outcomes. These finding attestto the request for balance of policy orientation between the equilibrium and thestructural approach to human capital utilization and placement.

    Jung Chang Lyul | 2014, 21(4) | pp.165~194 | number of Cited : 8
    Abstract PDF
    Reorientation of private pension in the pension reform has been an importanttheme in the western social policy but, the Korean occupational pension has beenoverlooked in social policy sphere. Starting from an awareness of the issues thatoccupational pension has the interface between economic and social policy, thispaper examines social policy functions of the current Korean occupationalpension. The analysis shows that income security-coverage, benefit level, benefitform and entitlement security-in the Korean occupational pension was structuredfrom a point of view of financial market activation rather than old age income security-social policy function. This distortion is because finance stakeholder haveplayed a leading role for occupation pension debate. Considering that the rolesand functions of occupational pension can be different whether occupational pensionsstrengthen the social functions or not, it is necessary to be interested in occupationalpension in the social policy sphere.
