Points to be checked at the time of hiring foreigners (1) Visa and other three items

After recruiting foreigners and accepting applications, what items should we check as an employer when recruiting personnel?
That is the following three points.

  1. Status of residence (Visa)
    The important point is the presence of the status of residence (visa) introduced earlier. When hiring foreigners, you need to have a status of residence without restrictions on the five types of work activities.
    Employers are also responsible for whether or not foreigners work outside the qualifications, and are charged with crimes. In order not to do so, be sure to check your residence status.


2,Existence of “limit of working hours”
The five types of study abroad, family stay, short-term stay, technical training and cultural activities are, in principle, status of residence in which employment is not permitted.
In addition, for “College Student” and “Family Stay”, it is possible to work if the Regional Immigration Bureau accepts permission for non-qualified activities.
In this case, the working hours can be up to 28 hours a week, and up to 8 hours a day during long-term leave of the educational institution where the foreigner is enrolled. Employers will be charged with the same charges as above if they are allowed to work beyond the work limit, so be careful.

3. Report to Hello Work

We will submit “Report on the status of employment of foreigners” to Hello Work when recruiting / retiring foreigners. This is a duty of all employers.
Please note that the employer will be fined up to ¥ 300,000 if the name of the foreign worker, status of residence, confirmation of the period of stay, and this notification are not received.

Let’s start preparing for job in Japan!
