University in Kyoto settles hiring muddle

One member had an interview at a university in Kyoto, and was offered the job, but the offer was later withdrawn as it was realised that he did not have the necessary qualifications (even though he had explicitly pointed this out in his resume).

The GU asked the university to honour its offer, but in the end the case was settled in late December by an apology and a satisfactory financial settlement. The university has also offered to handle any problems in the future through a grievance system.
