National efforts

The national government will hire target workers to business owners, business owners' organizations and other related parties in order to continue employment of target workers, promote reemployment and improve the welfare of these persons. It is said that it is possible to provide consultation and advice on employment management, special measures for reemployment and other measures at business establishments, payment of benefits and other necessary assistance (Article 30 of the Child Care and Nursing Care Leave Law), and the national government In order to eliminate the practices and other factors in the workplace that hinder the balance between the work life and family life of the target workers, etc., regarding the balance between the work life and family life of the target workers, etc. Other public relations activities and other measures necessary to deepen the general public's understanding shall be taken (Article 33 of the Child Care and Nursing Care Leave Law).

Measures for long-term care workers

In order to provide continuous long-term care, there is an economic burden, and the financial foundation is important even when considering the life after the end of long-term care.Even in the face of long-term care, it is not a good idea to retire immediately, and it is also a good idea to utilize a system to balance work and long-term care.It is also necessary for business owners to regard long-term care turnover as a management risk, and before skilled workers leave their jobs, it is necessary to establish and disseminate in-house systems and start efforts to support the balance between work and long-term care.
