Concerning Labour Supply Service

As a general rule, the Employment Security Law prohibits labour supply service which sends employees to work for other people, except for the following system of dispatching workers.

On dispatching workers

The Worker Dispatching Law prescribes that an employer has to obtain a license from, or report to the Minister of Welfare and Labour, when the employer dispatches an employee, whom the agent employs as its own company staff, to another company with which a worker dispatching contract has been agreed. The dispatched employee works at the designated company under the order or instruction of that company.

Worker dispatch can be carried out of any types of work except for work related to Port transport, Construction work, Security work, Work related to medical care and Work involving manufacturing articles.
It is illegal to operate a worker dispatch business without obtaining permission or making a notification, or to dispatch workers employed to another company in types of work which are excepted.

For example, dispatching workers for unskilled jobs at factories or construction sites is illegal.

With the increasing number of foreign nationals working in Japan, the number of illegal brokers who violate the Worker Dispatching Law and the Employment Security Law has increased. This has brought damages such as intermediary exploitation or vile dismissal of foreign nationals who contacted the brokers in order to find a job.

Because those brokers are illegally working, you may also be meeting with difficulties when the broker is exposed.

When you look for a job, you should be careful not to contact illegal brokers, but go through official channels, such as Public Employment Security Offices.

If you wish to know if employers have authorization of fee-charging employment services of worker dispatching services, please ask the staff of the Public Employment Security Office of your living jurisdiction.
