All Nippon Airways Co will introduce in April a sabbatical leave that will allow its employees to pursue personal interests such as studying for up to two years...

It's called a furlough.

Not very good two years unpaid leave? ¥200,000 bribe money.

In other words, you must still be employed with us, but we can't pay you.

Encouraging staff to retrain or upskill is a healthy plan for employees, but there seems to be more to the story? Will employees immediately get their full salary back after the sabbatical is over?
