Special Zones for Employment Deregulation

* Written by Eiji HARA, PPPC President

 There was a media report phrasing “Special Zones to make it easy to
fire the employees.” While the article stressed the possibility as
that “you’re fired because you’re late” depending on the clauses
of employment contracts, such an understanding is not accurate. 

 It is not that the clauses of the employment contract will be
respected than any others no matter how inappropriate they are; the
contents are to be checked according to a basic guideline.

 Also, such the employment contracts are to be limitedly applied
according to the three perspectives of location, company and employees.
It reflects the idea that the subject of this policy suggestion is
limited to high-class employees in the global companies.

 This suggestion, to be shown below, is just a moderate one, and if 
the government is incapable of handling this, we cannot stop being
pessimistic about the future of employment/labor reforms.
