Abstract

This chapter discusses on the most prominent topics in Japanese management: lifelong employment. It sketches the regulatory culture underlying this system, and discusses the role of Japanese labour law. It also presents empirical data to show that lifelong employment is in transition, while still playing an active part in today's Japanese corporations.
