Translation of Working Regulations and Company Rules

Working Regulation Translation

For proper employment management of foreign nationals,
how about creating a foreign language version of your employment rules and company regulations?

Reason for recommending the creation of a foreign language version

To comply with the revised "Guidelines for Employment Management of Foreign Nationals"

The revisions made in April 2019 require that working conditions be clearly stated in native or other languages so that foreign employees can understand them ("Major Revisions to the Guidelines for Employment Management of Foreign Nationals" publicized by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare").

Reason for recommending the creation of a foreign language version

To meet the obligation to inform of work regulations

Article 106 of the Labor Standards Act stipulates the obligation to inform workers of employment rules. However, if foreign employees do not understand the content of the rules even if they are informed in the prescribed manner, the company may not be considered to have fully fulfilled their obligation to inform.

Reason for recommending the creation of a foreign language version

To avoid the risk of labor problems

While foreign employees have many advantages, such as bringing diversity, there is also a risk of labor troubles due to differences in culture and customs. In order to prevent problems, it is important to properly inform employees of employment rules and regulations.


Excerpts from the "Guidelines for Employers to Take Appropriate Action Concerning Improvement of Employment Management for Foreign Workers" issued by Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare

(2) Ensuring proper working conditions
(ii) Clear indication of working conditions
(a) Delivery of written documents

When concluding a labor contract with a foreign worker, the employer shall deliver a written document that clarifies the main working conditions, such as wages and working hours, so that the foreign worker can understand them.
