GU Public Seminars – Know Your Rights at Work

Mar 1, 2022

The union will be holding open online seminars for members and non-members on Sunday, 20 March from 14:00 to 16:30.


Shakai Hoken (Health and Pension Insurance): Are you covered by these two important insurance? Find out why you should be covered and how to get covered including important changes to the enrolment criteria from October 2022.

Unlimited Term Contracts: Have you worked over five years for the same employer? You need to get an unlimited term contract to improve your employment security. University teachers especially are finding it more difficult as employers are trying to make use of a 10 year loophole. Good news from Tokyo courts over this matter
