THE FOREIGN WORKERS' HANDBOOK 2021/ 日本で働く外国人労働者のハンドブック(英語版)

PREFACE / はじめに

 An advisory service for labor problems is available at six offices of Tokyo Labor Consultation Center of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Many foreign workers in Japan come to our office to get some advice. Analysis of the nature of the complaints reveals that these problems arise from a lack of knowledge of Japanese laws or differences of culture and customs in daily life.
 The Labor Standards Law which stipulates working conditions, states that no employer shall discriminate against or favor any employee by reason of nationality or other status with regard to wages, working hours or other working conditions. The same may be said of related labor laws, for example, the Minimum Wages Law. Despite the existence of these laws, lack of knowledge of them causes many problems to arise. Most individuals do not fully recognize that these laws can be the means of solving or avoiding problems. Thus, this handbook was prepared to prevent labor problems and assist foreign workers to understand their workers' rights in this country.
 This book explains about essential legal matters, as well as related labor laws, procedures for residing and taxes concerning working in Japan. It's our sincere desire that readers will find this handbook useful.
