Are you in charge of hiring for your business or company in Japan? Making sure you are following labor and employment laws in Japan for all contracts, employment regulations, and employee benefits and conditions is very important. Whether you’re hiring Japanese employees or foreign ones, you should have an experienced lawyer with you when creating these documents.
There are many things to take into consideration when hiring employees in Japan. Some of these things include insurance, taxes, bonuses for employees, hiring as a regular (sei-shain) employee versus contract, etc. If you’re hiring a foreign employee, you’ll have to think about visas as well. It’s best to navigate employment and contracts in Japan with a lawyer who is both familiar with Japanese employment law and tax law and can speak to you in English, so nothing is lost in translation.
