  • The Comprehensive Labor Policy Promotion Act (CLPPA) (No. 24 of 2019 (Reiwa)) aims at eliminating sexual harassment, harassment against women and workplace bullying (known as “power harassment” in Japan)
  • This Act requires companies to put in place a policy to prevent harassment in the workplace, including taking measures to avoid recurrences
  • Failing to comply with this Law entails reputational risks, as companies’ names may be disclosed
