Some kindergartens are better than others, and there are definitely good ones out there. However, in our experience, many kindergartens in the Kansai & Nagoya areas have problems of some sort or another. Wouldn'T you like to be part of improving things?

These are some of the problems we have dealt with at some kindergartens. How does your workplace compare?
  • Harassment
  • Unjustified firings
  • Unwillingness to enroll employees in unemployment insurance
  • Unwilling to enroll in , or illegally cut salaries to, Shakai hoken (health & pension as mandated by law)
  • Threats of reduced salary when asking to be enrolled in shakai hoken
  • Forced or unpaid overtime
  • Lack of real breaks
  • Lack of preparation time
  • Inability to use paid leave as you want (guaranteed by law)
  • Half of employee's paid leave being set by the employer (usually illegally)
  • Illegal salary deductions for taking sick days
  • Money being withheld illegally when resigning

This is just a short list of some of the kindergartens we have members at.
