''Correlation between Worker Demographics and Worker Access to Firm-provided Family-friendly Policies in Japan''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.4 )
This paper identifies the workers who have access to family-friendly policies, and the correlation between these policies and worker demographics, using data from the Survey of Company Fringe Benefits. The study revealed that while women and low-income earners are more likely to use family-care-related policies, men and high-income earners are more likely to use policy (8) (flexible and/or discretionary working hours). Unlike Western countries, where occupation and income are significantly correlated with the use of these polices, the findings of this study indicate that human-capital-related variables are not correlated with the family-friendly policies, except for policy (8).
