The Possibility of Contemporary Japanese Labour Law to Regulate Work under the Gig Economy

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This article addresses the transformation of the concept of "workers" under Japanese labour law and the relevant judicial precedents, and - by adopting a predictive perspective - points out that contemporary Japanese labour law might not effectively protect gig workers from a variety of social risks. Ultimately, this article suggests that Japan should adopt a temporary special regime to regulate the working conditions of the emerging gig workers, which could help avoid the current difficulties regarding classification, as well as correct the shortcomings of contemporary Japanese labour law.
