Glen Wood is a former equity sales manager at the brokerage Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley, has been fighting for the past five years to gain justice for his patahara (paternal) case. Subject to years of what he describes as harassment within the workplace since returning from his parental leave, Wood is now set on raising awareness surrounding corporate Japan’s rigid work culture and the devastating impact it can have on parents who attempt to take time off business to take care of their child. Currently, he is re-trying his case with the Tokyo High Court and with the Labor Relations Commission.
