Precautions when determining the wage of the foreigners to hire

If a company employs foreigners, it is necessary to determine the wage in advance by the employment conditions or contract.
However, it is not enough to determine the wage in advance.
Foreign wages must be equivalent to the same wage of Japanese workers in the same work.
Unless there is a legitimate reason, it is not allowed to keep foreign wages lower than the Japanese wages.
It is not allowed to lower wages than the statutory minimum wage.
Furthermore, even if the wage above the face value is more than the statutory minimum wage, it is illegal if the hourly wage is lower than the minimum wage when considering actual overtime hours.
It is not allowed to differ employee benefits between Japanese and foreigners.
