Application of labor laws to international workers

[Question]At my workplace I am being discriminated against from other Japanese co-workers. Can such a thing be allowed?

[Answer]

Article 3 of the Labor Standards Act states “An employer shall not engage in discriminatory treatment with respect to wages, working hours or other working conditions by reason of the nationality, creed or social status of any worker.” For information about labor consultation, Osaka Prefectural Comprehensive Labor Office HP.
