When a visa application is denied in Japan, it means that there was some critical flaw in the application or that the applicant did not meet all the requirements for obtaining a visa. Therefore, reapplying immediately without making any corrections or changes to the application will likely result in another denial. Rather than immediately resubmit the same application, it is much more productive to review the denied application and attempt to fix any problems or weaknesses before resubmitting.
Subleasing property is not generally as accepted in Japan as it is in other parts of the world. Most rental contracts tend to include a provision specifically prohibiting subleasing. In these cases, the terms of the agreement will typically state that if a tenant subleases the apartment without the landlord’s prior approval, the landlord may cancel the contract.
The Partial Amendment of the Employment Contract Act of Japan took effect on April 1st, 2013 and is designed to help employees who are on fixed term contracts that continuously get renewed. The rule states that any fixed-term contract employee who has had his or her contract renewed 4 times can apply for a change to an employment contract without a fixed term. This rule greatly benefits contract employees who have been stuck in a cycle of continuous contract renewal with no chance of becoming a permanent employee.
Copyright infringement is when a party other than the copyright owner makes an unauthorized reproduction of the copyright. While this issue may seem fairly straightforward, it is important for the copyright owner to collect the necessary evidence before pursuing a claim. The copyright owner should be able to show that the infringing party knew about the copyright, the infringing work is similar and that the infringing party profited from the unauthorized use of the copyright.
