Come to the meeting & hear about you & your employer’s obligations

For a number of years the General Union has been advocating for the right of teachers to be enrolled in shakai hoken (health & pension) through their employers. Impending revisions to immigration law and guidelines make this more important than ever. One of the reasons given for the changes is to ensure that foreign residents are enrolled in the Japanese social insurance system. Major Changes are planned from April 2010 The Immigration Bureau will be including a check on health insurance enrollment as part of the visa renewal process from April 2010. According to the guidelines posted on the Immigration website, you will be required to present proof of enrollment “social insurance”.
