Non-renewal? 30 Days notice – no less!

According to Japanese labor law, employers need to give 30 days notice of non-renewal. Dodging that requirement can cause big problems for employers, including law suits.

Sure enough, only a few days after the General Union had caught wind of this looming non-renewal, the company sent another message: due to their mistake, they were unable to give the employee 30 days notice, and they felt obligated to allow the person to keep their job.

Even the Japanese government understands how negatively non-renewal impacts people. That is why they instituted the “Five Year Rule” allowing irregular workers to enter into non-limited term contracts.
