弁護士紹介

安原 邦博 Kunihiro Yasuhara
登録年 2014年 

自己紹介

弁護士を志したきっかけは、2008年末に東京・日比谷公園に出現した年越し派遣村です。数百人もの方々が職を失い、家も失くして寒空に放り出されている映像をTVで見て、衝撃を受けました。その後、「ハケン」というだけの理由で職を奪われた方が数百人どころか数十万人にも及んだことを知り、そのような不当な被害を受けた方を助けられる弁護士になりたいと、法科大学院進学を決めました。

弁護士になるまでの過程で、働く人が不当な被害に苦しむ問題には「ハケン」に限らず様々なものがあること、また、社会においては労働に限られず生活の様々な局面で不当な被害の問題があることを知り、弁護士になってからはそのような問題に注力しています。

民事、刑事を問わず全般的に取り組んでいますが、その中でも、労働問題、アスベスト問題、子宮頸がんワクチン問題やマイノリティ差別問題には特に思い入れがあり、重点的に取り組んでいます。

友人から悩み相談をされることが学生時代から多く、聞き上手とよく言われます。ぜひ、どのようなことでもご相談下さい。

Wage Theft

The attorneys at our office work hard for working people. Wage theft can happen in a lot of different ways.
Cases we handle include, but are not limited to:

Misclassification

Employers can save significant amounts of money by classifying employees as “exempt” and thereby not paying them overtime. Unfortunately, many employers misclassify employees for that reason — taking advantage of their employees’ hard work without having to pay them the wages they are due.

Off-the-Clock Claims

Requiring employees to work off the clock is a win for businesses — employees further the company’s interests without costing it a Yen. Requiring off-the-clock labor without pay, however, is wage theft, and it is illegal under the Labor Standards Act.

Pay for Training

Employers often require orientation, training for specific tasks, or training related to issues like sexual harassment. That’s fine—unless they expect employees to attend training without paying them for their time and efforts. If this has happened to you, it is wage theft, and it is important to consult with an experienced employment law attorney.

Wrongful Termination

Types of Wrongful Termination

Under the Japanese labor laws, your employment is not “at-will.” Your employer must have ‘’just cause’’ to terminate you. If you feel like you were fired for cause that other employees may not have been terminated for the same conduct, it may be a wrongful termination. Types of wrongful termination include, but are not limited to:

  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation – An employer may not terminate an employee in retaliation for the employee’s exercise of their rights. Examples of protected activity that can lead to a retaliatory termination are, but not limited to:
    • Whistleblowing
    • Unionizing or other union activity
    • Complaining of workplace discrimination or harassment
    • Use of vacation time, sick time, or other protected time off
    • Refusal to perform illegal or unethical acts
  • Work Injury/Illness – Employers may not terminate an employee for an injury or illness caused by work.

Compensation

If you settle a wrongful termination claim with your employer, or you obtain a favorable verdict at trial in a wrongful termination lawsuit, you may be entitled to receive various forms of compensation and relief from your employer. This may include:

  • Lost wages – You may be entitled to recover the wages you would be have been paid, measured from the date of your termination until the present date.
  • Lost benefits – Similar to lost wages, you may be entitled to receive benefits from your old job, such as health insurance and pensions.
  • Reinstatement – You may decide to seek reinstatement to your old position.

Work Injury/Illness

If you have suffered an injury or illness in your work environment, you may be entitled to receive additional benefits in the way of workers compensation. The following may be covered:

  • Work time lost
  • Disability – full or partial
  • Medical bills

It’s important to have the right team behind you, fighting for your rights and getting you the benefits you deserve. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your work injury/illness case – our attorneys are here to help.

 

Personal Injury

In life, accidents and injuries can happen at any time. Whether you’re at work or driving to the store, there is always a chance that you may be involved in an accident that can change your life in an instant. If you were recently involved in an accident that left you with painful injuries or emotional distress, you may be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit. Victims who win or settle their personal injury claims may collect compensation for their:

  • Medical treatment
  • Lost wages from time taken off of work
  • Future lost income (for disabling injuries)
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
