As the end of the second semester approaches students are finding jobs. As a result, the number of students who needed the Letter of Employment is increasing. The Letter of Employment is a document that students submit to the university to show that they have found a job, making it difficult to attend classes before graduation. In the past, students who had found employment early on could still be counted in attendance, at the discretion of professors, by simply submitting materials that could prove their employment. In 2016, however, the Kim Young-ran Act strengthened the laws on the job market. The Kim Young-ran Act is a part of the the Anti-Bribery and Graft Act that took effect in Korea on Sept. 28, 2016. People who work in media companies, private kidergarten, and public officials that accept bribes will be subject to criminal punishment. Cases of offering bribes or favors to public officials are subject to sanctions as well. For example, if an employed student submits the Letter of Employment in place of attendance, this constitutes an act of dishonesty. This is because under Article 14 of the Enforcement Decree of the Higher Education Act, attending classes for a certain number of days is the most basic condition for obtaining credits.

CWNU defines the following rules related to the Letter of Employment. First, students must be a graduate or in their final semester before graduating. Second, absence from classes throughout the semester due to internships or employment training should be allowed. Third, when entering school, it should be a person who has not been admitted to the job of class such as job placement. Students who meet these conditions may apply for attendance recognition and receive a certificate of confirmation. However, if early workers retire or close their business before the class, they must attend the class immediately. Also, in the event that a student submits false attendance for a class they will not receive any credits for that class.
