Recruitment, Hiring & New Employee Orientation for Japanese Companies



June 12, 2019
4-5pm PST / 6-7pm CDT / 7-8pm EST


Online Webinar

Presented in Japanese, Sachiyo Yamada Miller discusses the challenges of Japanese companies seeking to conduct business in the U.S., and Japanese companies who have been conducting business in the U.S. for many years and often find U.S. employment laws to be complex and confusing.

Topics of this Japanese-language webinar include:

  • Should the company classify the new worker as an employee or independent contractor?
  • What are the essential elements of every job description?
  • How should managers conduct interviews to lessen liabilities?
  • How do background checks create federal liability?
  • How can orientation reduce risks?

Sachiyo is an attorney in Masuda Funai’s California office, specializing in employment law. Sachiyo obtained a college degree in Japan and, after having worked for a semiconductor and communication devices manufacturer in Nagoya, Japan, moved to the U.S. where she obtained her law license. Sachiyo understands Japanese business culture and etiquette. Because of her extensive exposure to both Japanese and U.S. cultures, Sachiyo effectively communicates legal solutions to Japanese parent companies and their U.S. subsidiaries.

Webinar and Materials Will Be Presented in Japanese.
