Employment Adjustment Subsidy: Application Expanded for COVID-19 in April – June 2020

Japanese Version

 In late February 2020, relaxation of qualification for Employment Adjustment Subsidy (EAS) is written in my previous post. Since then, the infections are still spreading and the state of emergency has been declared along with voluntary ban in place on leaving home. This worsens business downturn as a side effect. To cope with the situation, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) has expanded EAS application further during an emergency period between April 1st and June 30th.

 For those with interests, please visit a page in my site covering EAS overview with comparison between the regular and the expanded EAS for COVID-19.

 As a citizen of this globe I am sincerely wishing for a day not so long in the future when the world starts rebuilding itself again with development of vaccines, which will remove fears and encourage people to step forwards. As a labor and social security attorney, I would be willing to support your business surviving through this challenging time.
