Information about the Technical Intern Training Program and labor conditions

 All of you technical intern trainees are here in Japan to acquire technical skills, and work at a Japanese company that implements technical intern training to learn the skills on the job, under an employment contract with an implementing organization. While you are in Japan, you are subject to all laws and regulations concerning labor, workers' accident insurance, and social insurance that apply to Japanese workers. You should therefore have basic understanding of the laws and regulations that apply to you.
 If you wish to learn about labor-related laws and regulations, refer to the "Technical Intern Trainee Handbook." If you wish to acquire a more general understanding of your rights and working conditions as a technical intern trainee and other basic information about living in Japan, refer to the "Technical Intern Training Guidebook for Technical Intern Trainees."
