Victory at Lang, Hiroshima

Lang is a small school with about 10 teachers in Hiroshima. It is infamous for unpaid and late wages. It had only just been sued by a Japanese staff member for 600,000 yen of unpaid wages when a member came to us about not having been paid 40,000 yen of his final salary.

To be honest, given the company's history, we saw little chance of recovering the money without suing in small claims court. But thanks to the GU's pressure on the Labor Standards Office to to take action against Lang, along with written demands and numerous telephone calls, we were successful in getting the money paid.

We have also been successful in having the school enroll teachers in the Employment Insurance fund. This is essential as the school has obvious financial problems. We have seen similar situations in the past where the company eventually went bankrupt.
