Human Rights Commission “Age limit is discriminatory when hiring psychological counseling firefighting and police officers”

– When hiring firefighters and police officers in charge of psychological counseling, the National Human Rights Commission of Korea judged that it is discriminatory to limit the application age to those under 40, as in general occupations.

– The Human Rights Commission announced on the 3rd that it had recommended the Gyeonggi Governor and the Commissioner of the National Police Agency to revise the relevant regulations so that there is no age limit when hiring experienced firefighters and police officers in the psychological counseling field.

– The Gyeonggi Provincial Office and the National Police Agency argued that the age restriction was necessary because there may be cases where you may have to be dispatched to the field while performing psychological counseling, and you may be transferred to a job other than counseling after the compulsory service period is over.

– The Human Rights Commission said, “The period of field service is less than one to two years, which is short compared to the total period of service. pointed out.
