Employment Services for the Elderly

Support for Employers Concerning Elderly Employment

With a view toward stabilizing the employment of the elderly, Grants for the Stable Employment of the Elderly are provided to employers who take measures to improve their employment environment for further utilizing the elderly and those who transfer elderly workers’ employment from fixed-term to non-fixed term.JEED seeks to realize a “society with lifelong employment” by providing counseling and other forms of support on technical issues concerning employment of the elderly for employers and employers’ organizations as well as conducting research/surveys such as the development of practical methods and publicity activities. These supports aim to facilitate employers’ initiatives in the development of “companies where people can work regardless of their age”. They also aim to improve employment management for the elderly as well as to secure a variety of vocational opportunities for them.
