Japanese-English Model Work Rules - Third Edition
Michihiro Mori and the Nishimura & Asahi Labor Law Practice Group, which includes Hiroaki Matsui, Aya Kijima, Takeo Tsukamoto, et al., edited and co-authored Japanese-English Model Work Rules - Third Edition.
Recently there have been significant changes in japan's labor laws relating to "Work Style Reform". We reflect such changes in the third edition, as well as amendments to the Worker Dispatch Act and to the Act on Childcare Leave, Caregiver Leave, and Other Measures for the Welfare of Workers Caring for Children or Other Family Members.
The composition of the third edition is basically the same as that of the second edition, but we have added a basic explanation on the Worker Dispatch Act. Moreover, we did not only reflect the revision of the law, we also made revisions to respond to new guidelines regarding labor related matters, and the current work environment in Japan.
Since the opening of our Fukuoka office in July 2013, I have been providing agile and flexible responses to a wide variety of corporate legal needs in the Kyushu, Okinawa, and Chugoku regions. I have particular experience in the business areas of Restructuring & Insolvency, labor, Corporate Crisis Management, M&A, and Corporate matters. With respect to Restructuring & Insolvency, I have handled legal insolvency proceedings such as Corporate Reorganization & Civil Rehabilitation, as well as Out-of-Court Workouts and Early Stage Restructuring. In addition, I also handle specialized litigation, such as construction litigation and labor litigation. With respect to various legal issues that companies face on a daily basis, I provide legal advice not only to listed companies but also to a wide range of companies, including local companies and venture companies. Lastly, I am also available for various seminars based on my experience as a lecturer at Chuo law school.
