Labor Update Bulletin #22 (11/2017)

This bulletin contains information on law changes that have either passed, or are being discussed, in parliament, court decisions, and other labor issues in Japan.

We hope that some of this information will also be of interest to activists, supporters of the General Union, and those who want to know more about labor issues in Japan.


In this bulletin...

• Government to lift bans on side jobs within the year;

• Q&A on the Amended Child-Care Leave Act;

• Unemployment benefits: what happens when a family member who was receiving benefits dies?;

• Toyota, Honda, have changed their employment rules to avoid limited-to-unlimited contract conversion;

• Settlement reached in "black arbeito" lawsuit (a nationwide first);

• And more!
