FAQs

What is Haken (Temp or Dispactched worker) ?

A Haken (Temporary worker or Temp) who is not employed directly by the company they are working for, but through an agency who sent them to the company is a form of “indirect employment”. Their salary is based on hourly rates and transport costs are often included in the hourly rate. Because of the nature and scope of the work, you will be able to specialise in a particular remit and will not have unrelated scope of work that are often associated with permanent employment.

If you end up working for the same company for more than three years, you will need to enter into a direct employment contract ie. You will become an employee of the company you’re working for (either permanent or contractual) rather than a temporary worker through an agency.

What is Shokai Yotei Haken (Temp to perm) ?

Shokai Yotei Haken (Temp to perm) is a temporary staffing system which is based on the premise of “switching from indirect employment to direct employment” which is progress from Haken as discussed above. The maximum period of employment for temporary workers is six months, during which the company you’re working for would decide if they wanted to employ you directly. This is similar to a long-term probation or internship.

The biggest advantage for both employers and employees is finding the right fit. There will be less of a mismatch for both parties. Employees get to see how the job actually works and how it fits with the company instead of basing the role on a job description.

What is Gyomu Itaku (Outsourcing) ?

Gyomu Itaku (Outsourcing) is not employment but a partnership. You function like an agency and partner with the company. Many freelancers and sole traders work for companies on an outsourcing basis and receive remuneration for the work agreed.

There are two general types of outsourcing contracts namely “contract” which is an agreement where candidates are paid upon their deliverables and “Inin Keiyaku” which is a mandate contract for legal issues and candidates are paid simply for the service they provide where no deliverables are required.

At Computer Futures, we mainly support “Jyun Inin Keiyaku” which is a quasi-mandate contract. This is a mandate contract for non-legal issues where you are paid for the work or service itself, as opposed to a contract where you are paid for the deliverables. In other words, you are contracted and paid to manage an internal system, provide IT helpdesk services or manage a project for a specific period of time.
