Injury or illness at work
Irrespective of nationality, if a worker is injured while at work, medical bills and other costs are covered by Workers' Compensation Insurance. Matters covered are illness, injury, disability, or death as a result of work or travel to and from work. If your employer will not give you Workers' Compensation Insurance coverage, please consult either the Labor Standards Bureau with jurisdiction over your company or the Aichi Labor Bureau Advisor for Foreign Workers (052-972-0253, in English or Portuguese). Trainees who have entered the country on a trainee visa and workers who do not have an employment contract with their company are not covered by Workers' Compensation Insurance.
