Japan's revised labor contract law went into effect as of April 1, which may not affect you immediately but in a few years time will affect many of you. This is an opportunity to learn the three important points of the new law from a labor expert and to prepare for any potential troubles concerning your employment. Even if you have permanent employment contract, there is always a chance that your companies may change your status. We will have materials in English explaining the new law, which is not made available yet by the Labor Ministry.
