Employment Support for the Elderly



Support for Employers Concerning Elderly Employment

With a view toward stabilizing the employment of the elderly, Grants for the Stable Employment of the Elderly are provided to employers who take measures to improve their employment environment for further utilizing the elderly and those who transfer elderly workers’ employment from fixed-term to nonfixed term. JEED seeks to realize a “society with lifelong employment” by providing counseling and other forms of support on technical issues concerning employment of the elderly for employers and employers’ organizations as well as conducting research/surveys such as the development of practical methods and publicity activities. These supports aim to facilitate employers’ initiatives in the development of “companies where people can work regardless of their age”. They also aim to improve employment management for the elderly as well as to secure a variety of vocational opportunities for them.

Counseling and Assistance by Advisors on Employment of the Elderly

The Elderly Employment Stabilization Law stipulates that employers must implement elderly employment security measures up to the age of 65 for all persons who desire them. These measures include raising or abolishing their retirement age and introducing a continued employment system in private enterprises to secure employment of workers who have reached the retirement age. Various conditions will be required if private enterprises are to implement and firmly establish elderly employment security measures up to the age of 65 for all employees who wish to continue working as well as to create working environments in which elderly individuals can fully exercise their abilities. Among them are reexamination of personnel management systems including wage and retirement benefit systems, development and improvement of vocational capability, development of job categories, and improvement of the work environment. In order to support approaches for establishing such conditions at companies, JEED commissions specialists with professional and practical expertise in the field of elderly employment (such as management and labor consultants, small- and medium-sized enterprise management consultants, and social insurance labor consultants) as advisors on employment of the elderly (Advisors). They are stationed throughout Japan to provide services at respective JEED prefectural offices. Upon request, Advisors visit companies that are implementing or enhancing their elderly employment security measures or improving employment management. Through use of the corporate management consulting system*, Advisors provide professional and technical counseling and assistance on identification and clarification of any impediments involved in establishing necessary conditions for elderly employment and on concrete issues, including procedures and methods for problem-solving. Furthermore, when requested by companies, Advisors provide training for corporate workplace administrators and middle-aged and older employees, as well as training to support the design of vocational life in old age.

Support for Employers Concerning Elderly Employment

At a time when the labor force is shrinking because of the falling birth rate and the aging population, it has become increasingly essential for elderly individuals to play an active role in supporting our society. In light of these trends, with the aim of realizing a society with lifelong employment, JEED develops practical methods concerning the expansion of job categories and the reexamination of wages and personnel management systems for identifying the issues, and clarifying the points for solving and improving them in order to smoothly implement employment security measures up to the age of 65 for all employees who wish to continue working as well as to advance the approach of companies where people can work regardless of their age. In addition to being compiled into reports, results of the practices mentioned above are summarized into easy-to-understand pamphlets and used in work settings as a reference for corporate approaches to employment of the elderly. They are also reedited into manuals for Advisors to be utilized for their counseling and support activities as well as for improving their knowledge and counseling/support skills. They are also utilized in articles and commentaries in newspapers and magazines.

For these purposes, JEED collects and disseminates information on employers’ good practices in order to ensure the smooth implementation of employment security measures up to the age of 65 for all employees who wish to continue working and promote the concept of companies where people can work regardless of their age. JEED collects companies’ good initiatives that help to improve the work environment for elderly workers and holds contests to recognize the best of these, with the awards ceremony at the Elderly Employment Development Forum being held every year in October (designated Elderly Employment Support Month). In the Forum, companies are also provided with the opportunity to introduce their initiatives. In addition, local workshops and symposia are held to promote understanding aimed at creating a society with lifelong employment. Also JEED utilizes the Internet, technical journals, and other forms of mass media to broadly provide information to the general public and companies, with the aim of building national momentum towards realizing a society with lifelong employment. The information includes companies’ good practices in elderly employment, as well as measures to address an aging society.

Employment Support for Persons with Disabilities



Levy and Grant System for Employing Persons with Disabilities

The employment of persons with disabilities in many cases requires employers to take special steps, such as workplace facility and equipment modifications, workplace environment changes, and adoption of special personnel management programs. Since these measures involve a financial outlay, an economic imbalance arises between employers who fulfill their social responsibility to employ disabled workers and those who do not. The Levy and Grant System for Employing Persons with Disabilities is based on the principle of collective social responsibility, which claims that the responsibility for employing persons with disabilities must be borne equally by all employers. Based on the Law for Employment Promotion of Persons with Disabilities, the system has been set up to balance the financial burdens that accompany employment of persons with disabilities among employers, as well as to provide support and advice to employers in order to promote and secure employment of persons with disabilities.

1

Reporting and Payment of Levies for Employing Persons with Disabilities

■ Levy and Grant System for Employing Persons with Disabilities

Employers with more than 100 regular workers are required to file a levy form. Among employers, those who fail to meet the legally required employment quota (which is the equivalent of 2.0% of the employer’s total workforce) must pay a levy for each person below the quota. The levy per month is 50,000yen (40,000yen for employers with more than 100 but not exceeding 200 regular employees, as a limited-time special abatement) per person below the quota.

Rewards

Employers with 100 regular workers or less whose total employment of persons with physical, intellectual and/ or mental disabilities exceeds a fixed number (equivalent to the accumulative number in that fiscal year of 4% of all regular workers per month or 72 persons, whichever is greater) may receive a Reward (21,000yen per month per person) for the number of disabled workers in excess of the fixed number.

Adjustment Allowance for Employing Persons with Disabilities

Employers with more than 100 regular workers who employ more than the stipulated quota (2.0%) of workers with physical, intellectual and/or mental disabilities can apply for an Adjustment Allowance for Employing Persons with Disabilities for the number of disabled workers exceeding that quota. The adjustment allowance per month is 27,000yen per person.
