ALTs - Have you received a health check?

Some dispatch companies, but not all, provide annual health checks. Japan has one of the highest rates of tuberculous in the western world, and as a result, School Health & Safety Law mandates that teachers must be tested yearly.

Industrial Safety & Health Law also dictates that most workers should receive annual health checks. For most workers, the company must pay for the health check. Is your company following the law? Read more about health checks.

Recently we have received numerous inquiries from ALTs not receiving tests, or being made to pay themselves. We are preparing to take up the issue at some companies. Let us know if you haven't received a check in the past year.
