Workation sounds nice.

Too bad most ossan-managers will just see workation as an excuse for their employees to saboru work.

Leave it to Japan to go opposite to most developed countries.

Now it will be near obligatory for workers on vacation, days off to be available 24/7 for work and the companies will claim it all as "Workation".

While other developed countries are passing laws to make sure a vacation is actually a vacation and workers can leave phones and laptops behind.

Here comes Japan to figure out how it can legally make people work more even on vacation.

I am so glad I own my business, I may be having a seriously hard time during covid but it sure beats the 24/7 crap I had to put up with before.

Its ominous... what do you think that means for your current Insurance when "Working from Home" ?

It is a small amount of support but hopefully the beginning of a trend where proper, regulated work from home can become a reality.
