Japan Times reports on a new start-up called EXIT that will help you quit your job in a country where quitting is frowned upon.
Niino and Okazaki says they have worked for clients who felt cornered to the point of considering taking their own lives. For them, Exit provided a life-saving solution.
Once an online request is accepted and the fee is deposited, Exit contacts the employer and notifies them of the client’s intention to resign and how, in most cases, they will no longer be coming in to work. Exit will relay other requests the client may have, including using up any paid leave, but steers clear of anything that requires a lawyer to handle, such as negotiating severance packages.
