Abstract

This teaching case addresses a situation where a Korean subsidiary of the Inditex Group, a global clothing manufacturing and retailing firm, is confronted with a gender discrimination situation which violates both parent firm policies and local laws, but is consistent with the traditional Korean HR approach. A decision must be made as to how to address the situation. Despite the legal ramifications, there is relatively little business incentive to implement radical change. However, modifications to the status quo, if any need to be made, will have both strategic and tactical implications on their present operations.
