Labor authorities agreed to pay workers’ compensation to a gay man who suffered from mental illness after being outed by his boss, which may be the first such judgment in Japan. “I couldn’t trust anybody anymore (after being outed),” said the man in his 20s on July 24. “I had to come forward to make it right.” A labor standards inspection office in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro district accepted in March 2022 a claim for workers’ compensation filed by the man in April the previous year.
