Orrick’s Total Access Japan Event Series provides entrepreneurs business, tactical, and legal education through webinars, complimentary panels and networking events.

Despite the fading physical borders in the era of globalization, global companies continue to face challenges when managing their employees as different employment laws apply depending on where each employee resides. In Japan, a country where employees are highly protected, it is difficult to meet the needs of employers as well as employees while complying with the local labor laws.

In this webinar, Yumiko Ohta, partner in our Tokyo office, will examine common employment issues faced by Japanese technology companies, as well as how to handle the evolving working styles due due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ken O’Friel, Co-Founder and CEO of WorkCo Inc., a company that facilitates worldwide hiring for startups/technology companies based in Silicon Valley and currently expanding to Japan, will join as a guest speaker and discuss the concerns global tech companies may face when hiring as well as the best practices for HR management. 

Moderated by Joseph Perkins, partner in our Silicon Valley office, and with the participation of Hiroki Sugita, partner in our Tokyo office, the webinar will follow an open discussion format between our presenters, with opportunities to ask questions.  We encourage you to submit questions ahead of time so our presenters can conduct any necessary research prior to the event.

To submit your question, please contact Tokyo Marketing.
