The ministry has not specified the reason for its move in the document, which just says that the number of apprentices sent to Japan has highly increased recently. However, some cases have occurred related to the prestige of Vietnamese human resource market in Japan.
Therefore, the ministry required businesses to appoint employees fluent in Japanese to undertake Japanese market and labor management there.
Export labor contracts must ensure that working time does not exceed eight hours a day and 40 hours per week, and comply with local regulations on accommodation, wage and air tickets.
Every six months, the Department of Overseas Labor must suspend businesses whose ratio of apprentices quitting their jobs exceeds 5 percent.
