On the other hand, in Japan, although the digitalization of SMEs is progressing due to the corona crisis, about 40% of SMEs still have not introduced IT tools related to human resources (attendance management, payroll calculation, etc.). You can see the situation.

-In the “construction industry”, the upper limit on overtime work, which had been graced until now, will be applied from April 2024.
