ABSTRACT

The two major fundamental components of the current reserve force management system in Korea are the civilian officers working in military and the commanders of workforce reservists. However, the roles and the status of the commanders seem quite ambiguous and have not been clearly identified. Their roles and the status are specified only by one instruction from the general administration department. Furthermore, some terms and conditions of their positions, such as prohibition of labor union participations, could violate people’s basic human rights against the principle of statutory reservation. Since the status of the commanders is basically ‘civilian’, it is inappropriate to delegate tasks from the government to the private sector, considering the importance of those tasks. Thus, there is an urgent need to legislate a new law specifying the status of the commanders and enhancing financial support for them.
