Uber Eats confirms proof of residence face-to-face for foreigners Prevention of illegal employment

On December 2020, 12, Kyodo News delivered the following contents.

According to the Immigration Bureau of Japan, Uber's delivery staff are not hourly part-time workers, but sole proprietors who earn money for each delivery.Foreigners with a status of residence who are not allowed to work, such as international students, are required to work as delivery staff after obtaining the "individual permit" of "non-qualified activities".Without permission, you will be in violation of the Immigration Refugee Law (out-of-qualification activities).Uber said in an interview, "We are reviewing the registration procedure for delivery partners with foreign nationalities and are informing them of the necessary procedures."

To put it simply, "If an international student wants to work part-time for delivery at Uber Suites, he / she will be illegally employed unless he / she obtains an" individual permit "among the permit for activities outside the qualification."

Uber can't encourage illegal labor as a company, so you started to check if foreign delivery personnel have the proper qualifications.

"Out-of-qualification activities" are the permits required to carry out activities other than those permitted by the foreigner's visa.Many people may know so far.But what exactly is "individual permission" here?

There are two types of non-qualified activity permits: "comprehensive permits" and "individual permits".

According to the Immigration website, if you want to do "non-qualified activities" (part-time job), there are two types of part-time jobs, and you need to obtain permission according to the type.

With "Comprehensive Permit", the employer, location, business content, etc. of the part-time job are not specified in advance at the time of application.However, "I will work part-time with the contents permitted by the permission for activities outside the qualification" (including pachinko and mahjong stores)Engagement in customs business is prohibitedThe rule that has been done) must be observed.

There are also rules regarding uptime.In the case of a comprehensive permit, the principle is "do not exceed 28 hours per week".If you work part-time on an hourly basis, it is clear whether you are observing this condition.Therefore, it is subject to a comprehensive permit.


[②Individual permission(Comprehensive permitActivities outside the scopeWhen engaging in)

However, what about the "part-time job of delivering Uber sweets" that was a problem in the article introduced at the beginning?

For Uber Eats delivery, you will be charged a part-time job in units of "¥ XNUMX per delivery".Delivery time =Contract details that allow you to receive salary regardless of operating hours.

Then, it deviates from the regulation of operating hours stipulated in the comprehensive permit of ①.

Like this"Individual permission" is required for "when engaging in activities where it is difficult to objectively confirm the activity time"is.Since the part-time job destination is clarified and the permission of the part-time job is obtained individually, it is called "individual permission".

"I work part-time without an individual permit, even though I need an individual permit"Illegal workIt will be.

Other activities that require individual permission include:

[Example of those who are subject to individual permission]
