Japanese Employment and Labor Law, an important new edition of what was previously Japanese Labor Law, conveys the developments in Japan since the earlier translation. Although there have been many important adaptations to Japanese “labor law,” including developments in collective labor relations, union organization, strikes, lockouts, boycotts, collective bargaining, and unfair labor practices, most of the new developments have been in the realm of individual labor relations, which is known in the United States as “employment law.”

Major changes in employment law addressed in the book include: sex discrimination in employment, childcare and nursing-care leaves, workers’ accident compensation, flexible work schedules, tentative hiring decisions, minimum wages, maximum hours, occupational health and safety, tort recoveries, and corporate reorganizations, among others.

With the same blend of astute economic and legal analysis he displayed in the earlier edition, Professor Sugeno examines the new developments in both employment and labor law.The first edition of this English language translation of Professor Sugeno’s treatise was published a little over ten years ago. Approximately half of the present translation by Leo Kanowitz consists of material not contained in the earlier English-language edition.
