Does anybody know if it's legal to employ someone in Japan without a fixed minimum number of working hours? I mean just working as and when needed, whenever there is work available. Brits will be familiar with these as 'zero-hours contracts' because they've been in the news a lot recently. I've Googled a lot of stuff in English and found about part-time contracts, and temporary contracts, but not seen any mention of zero-hours except a brief article where it's defined as zero-jikan keiyaku/ ゼロ時間契約).
