    • 17:30 - 18:30
    • Webinar


    The recent wide coverage in the media about the "Karoshi" crisis ("working to death" in Japanese) has aroused the interests of the public and employers to learn more about labour regulations in Japan.

    Both employers and employees have the obligation to understand certain rights and protections when it comes to overtime work.     

    In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:

    • Current issues facing employers and employees
    • Employment law in Japan and its implications
    • Compliance and regulatory issues facing employers
    • Tips on measuring and monitoring overtime work and its precautions.

    With the recent news about Japan's unemployment rate reaching its lowest level in 20 years, our experts will also discuss how this would affect the overtime culture and what authorities can do to help improve it.

    The following speakers from TMF Group and DLA Piper will share their knowledge and practical experience during this webinar.

     

    Mr Lawrence Carter
    Partner, DLA Piper Japan

    presents


    Few people predicted that the election of Donald Trump as United States president would be good for Japan. Since his win in November 2016, stocks have ticked upwards, the yen has weakened and deflation has been conquered. Abenomics, the Japanese prime minister’s economic revival strategy, is enjoying a second wind.

    For Japan to fully benefit from current trends, its companies must now do their part. Crucial priorities include modernising workplace cultures, reducing overtime, increasing wages, and boosting the participation of women, foreigners and other marginalised groups. Support for innovation and entrepreneurship should follow close behind.

    The Japan Summit 2017 will bring together government officials, senior business leaders, entrepreneurs, and experts from think-tanks and academia. In a day of lively debate, they will explore whether Japan can take advantage of current global and domestic trends, and discuss how the public and private sectors can work together to put the country back on the path to strong and steady long-term growth.
