Disposing of 102 people of Japan Post without approval Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications September 15 22:45

On the 15th, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications issued oral cautions and other measures against more than 100 people who had been confirmed to have similar side jobs, because japan Post employees with special qualifications to handle “content certification” at post offices were working concurrently with fire brigades and agriculture without the approval of the government.
Among postal services, “content certification” in which a copy is kept by the post office in order to keep a record of the letter is to be handled by an employee with a national qualification of “postal certifier”.

In the case of a side job, it is necessary to obtain the approval of the government, but it was found that the employees of Japan Post were working concurrently as fire brigades and agriculture without obtaining approval, and since April, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has disposed of more than 2,800 people, including disciplinary actions such as disciplinary actions and strict cautions.

Since then, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has imposed oral caution and other measures against a total of 102 people, as similar work has been confirmed.

Japan Post commented, “We take the situation seriously and would like to make sure that guidance is thorough so that this does not happen in the future.”

On the other hand, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications revised the rules in August to make procedures easier when working concurrently with fire brigades, and asked Japan Post to thoroughly disseminate the contents.
