Working Paper 29: "Non-regular work: Trends, labour law policy, and industrial relations developments – The case of Japan"

This paper is one of a series of national studies on collective bargaining, social dialogue and non-standard work conducted as a pilot under the Global Product on „Supporting collective bargaining and sound industrial and employment relations‟. The national studies aim at identifying current and emerging non-standard forms of work arrangements within which workers are in need of protection; examining good practices in which those in nonstandard forms of work are organized; analyzing the role that collective bargaining and other forms of social dialogue play in improving the terms and conditions as well as the status of non-standard workers and identifying good practices in this regard.
