Nintendo recognizes same -sex marriage. Applicable to our employees as it is married
Nintendo has added the ‘Partnership System’, an internal scale that recognizes the same sex marriage of an in-house employee or a variety of gender partnerships.
Nintendo introduced its homepage that same-sex marriage is not recognized according to the current Japanese law, but the system allows employees to partner with Dongsung partners to enjoy the same benefits as opposite marriage staff. In other words, it will consider some kind of facts between the two as legal marriage and support the benefits of married people.
Nintendo has already stated that it is not discriminated against according to the Code of Conduct, Racial, ethnic, nationality, ideology, religion, creed, origin, social status, class, occupation, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. There is a bar. This program was expanded and applied to the ‘partnership system’.
Nintendo said, We will create an environment where everyone can work comfortably.. According to Nintendo’s regulations, Nintendo is prohibited from discrimination based on sexual orientation and sexual identity.
In Japan, where the headquarters is located, it was unconstitutional to not recognize same-sex marriage in March 2021. According to the Asahi Shimbun, Governor Koike Yuriko Tokyo will introduce a ‘partnership’ system that recognizes sexual minorities in November. Prior to the decision of Tokyo, Nintendo is leading to a leading movement.
