COVID-19 and Labour Law: Japan
Keywords:Covid-19, Labour Law, Sickness Benefit, Telework
AbstractIn the case of Japan, a national-level “state of emergency declaration” has not yet been issued. If a worker is infected with Covid-19, the absence allowance will not be paid. Instead, the worker will receive an injury and sickness benefit. They are also eligible for workers' compensation insurance benefits. The government will subsidize the full amount of wages paid to companies that allow employees to take paid leave to care for children.
