Hi, I am Saiko Kitazawa, a Sharoushi, or a Labor and social security attorney.
We provide the services as follows;
1. HR Consultation
We provide legal advisory services to companies as legal consultants in the fields of labor and social insurance.
In Japan, Labor and social insurance laws demand a wide range of obligations of employers who usually don’t have enough knowledge concerning such obligations (even Japanese employers!).
Therefore, we make them aware of the legal requirements of labor laws and procedures, which help them understand the importance of legal compliance and avoid the risks of lawsuits.
In addition, international companies and the companies which have connections with those international companies, are required to follow UNGPs (UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights). We support those companies to implement and maintain it so that they can do business under international standards.
2. Preparation and submission of documents related to the HR department
Employers are required to make various documents to apply, notify and report to the administrative agencies under the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare (MHLW) by law. We take the role of proxy for clients’ legal administration.
There are various subsidies provided by the government for those companies which try to improve the condition of work and run HR services properly, but the procedures of application are so complicated and often changed.
We support the companies to create a workplace environment better and apply for those subsidies which meet the condition.
3. Payroll Calculation
Payroll calculations are complicated in Japan. The companies are required to calculate the proper amount of payment including overtime fees and deduct social insurance premiums and income tax from the wages.
Inappropriate calculations may cause a problem between employees, which might affect the conduct of businesses.
We conduct the calculation and make both the company and the employee satisfied with the results.
