Reports are coming to light of foreign workers in Japan as part of the Technical Trainee Internship Programme (TITP) being prohibited by their employers from ‘romantic relations’, and being fined for having become pregnant while in Japan. One ‘intern’ from Vietnam who found she was two months pregnant states she was told ‘terminate the pregnancy of we will send you back to Vietnam - it’s your choice’.

"Expectant trainees told to end pregnancy or leave Japan," 02 December 2018

Torn between having an abortion to keep working to pay off her family's...debt or give up her internship...a 22-year old technical trainee from Vietnam decided to flee her workplace.

Many pregnant technical trainees are being forced to make a tough decision by their employers and related organizations.

Sentouitsu Workers Union...which organizes individual workers irrespective of their company affiliation, arranged for the trainee to flee her direre situation. 

At a pre-internship training facility... technical trainees are required to sign a letter of consent that forbids them from "having any romantic relationship with the opposite sex"...

Syoichi Ibusuki, a lawyer familiar with the issues surrounding foreign technical trainees, said, "It is a clear violation of human rights and an unacceptable practice to forbid trainees from getting involved in romantic relationships and becoming pregnant."
