Nine years struggle at the Japan Red Cross ends

On March 26th, the nine years struggle of HIROSE Akemini ended with an ex-officio settlement at the Tokyo High Court. Hirose had been employed by a temp agency named “Staff Service” and worked at the Japan Red Cross Blood Center. But she alleged that she was forced to do jobs other than those designated by the temp contract. She demanded direct employment with the Red Cross but was finally dismissed in 2009. When she took her case to the Tokyo District Court she failed to win reinstatement, although the court ruled that the temping contract was illegal. Her case was pending at the Tokyo High Court, but the Red Cross and the temporary agency finally agreed to compensate her and settle the case. Hirose held a news conference on April 1st, expressing her thanks for the support she received during the nine years struggle.
