Due to the recent labor shortage, an increasing number of companies are looking to hire foreigners as a workforce.
However, there are some things you need to be more careful about when hiring foreigners than when hiring Japanese people.
Foreigners residing in Japan must have some type of Status of Residence.
There are two types of Status of Residence: those that allow foreigner to work and those that do not allow foreigner to work.
Even if foreigner has a Status of Residence that allows foreigner to work, the content of work that foreigner can do is determined by his/her Status of Residence.
Also, the period of stay is set, and if foreigner does not renew his/her period of stay before it expires, he/she will be overstayed.
You can find out about them by looking at foreigners residence card.
Therefore, when hiring foreigners, it is necessary to check their residence card and confirm whether they can work in your company.
There are no restrictions on the types of work that can be done for the four Statuses of Residence: "Permanent resident," "Long-term resident," "Spouse or Child of Japanese National" and "Spouse or Child of Permanent Resident"
Additionally, companies that newly employ foreign nationals must submit a "Notification of Foreign Employment Status."
On the other hand, from the perspective of a foreigner hired, if you are the only foreigner in your first workplace, I think you will often feel anxious not only at work but also in your personal life.
It is also important to take measures to eliminate such concerns when hiring foreigners.
If you want to hire a foreigner but are not sure what to do, we recommend that you consult with a Certified Administrative Procedures Legal Specialist who specializes in immigration services for foreigners.
If he/she is a Certified Administrative Procedures Legal Specialist who specializes in immigration services for foreigners, you can rest assured that he/she will not only help you with procedures, but also provide other consultations.
