Y rights Co Ltd specializes in providing assistance to those who are suffering due to divorce, adultery, and sexual harassment. Through their proxy handling service, they hope to make it easier for victims to get the consolation money they're entitled to.
According to their press release, Y Rights has data (presumably a survey) showing that 53% of those who were cheated on or were sexually harassed wished to claim consolation money but only 1% of them actually went through with it. This shows how difficult it is for victims to speak out in Japan. Victims not only face high legal costs but struggle every day to continue their work and protect their families, which makes it difficult for them to turn to a law firm. There's also the psychological barrier which makes it difficult to talk about their situation.
Ease of use
With Y Rights, you only need to enter the details of the damage online, from the comfort of your home, without talking to anyone, and an attorney will intervene to solve the problem and transfer the consolation money to your account in as little as one week. Y Rights understands that "it's not a problem that can be solved with money" but they hope "it will help the perpetrator understand the victim's suffering, even if only a little."
