Japanese security guard files suit against his supervisor

Date Posted: 2008-03-07

After months of trying to get the attention of US Marine Corps officials about his being harassed on the job by his supervisor, a Japanese security guard is taking his case to court.

The guard, assigned to a Marine Corps Military Police office, has contended for nearly nine months his supervisor keeps ordering him to “just sit here and do nothing. You must not even read a newspaper while you sit here” at the Camp Zukeran MP Office. His complaints to American supervisors have gone unheeded, the security guard says, leaving him no choice but to file a lawsuit against his Japanese guard supervisor.

He is seeking ¥3 million in damages through the Naha District Court, charging he doesn’t want to accept any more harassment, and he doesn’t want to retire. The guard says “American military police and commanders move and change their work place within 3-4 years, but not Japanese workers.” He contends “the boss works almost all of his life on American bases, and that is giving too much power harassment to workers.”

The final straw, the guard says in his complaint filed Monday, was that his Japanese boss created documents implying he’d committed some sort of crime the boss noted. The guard says more than half the Japanese workers at the military police office are against the supervisor.
