Hi guys, I would like to hear your advice about the renewal of my job’s contract. I’m working as contract employee since 1st January of 2017 in an architectural company which mainly dispatch employees to general contractors and design firms.(aka 建築派遣会社). When I have been hired last year, the company promised me that after 1 year they would have changed my contract to indefinite period contract employee (無期期間契約社員) or regular employee (正社員). The choice is up to me. Now, as contract employee I don’t have bonus and wage raise, but I have 30000 yen/month as not well specified 手当。So it’s like basic wage 230000 + 30000 bonus/month. From what I understood last year the 30000 yen/month bonus is only for contract employees. Does the 2-months bonus/year a right guaranteed by law for every regular employee? Or anyway is up to the company? If I change to regular employee is likely I am going to lose those 30000yen/month in exchange for “maybe” yearly bonus. Around next week I will meet them to talk about my decision, but because it’s my first working experience in Japan I want to get prepared for things I should make clear before taking my decision. Should I ask for a (written) economic prospect of both hypothesis before making a choice? I made some research in Japanese about the two types of contract , and it seems the regular employer has all the merits. But I still want to understand if there is any tricky point somewhere. I feel suspicious that they let me choose the contract. I think about: taxes , maternity leave, paid vacations, resignation, etc. Probably is important to say I don't intend to work long for this company. I would be really glad If you have any advice about the choice. Thank you guys!
