New father sues Japan Inc. for allegedly harassing and demoting him for taking paternity leave

EXCERPTS
TOKYO—Brokerage manager Glen Wood was still negotiating with his bosses to take three or four weeks of paternity leave when his son was born six weeks premature.
Wood, 48, a Canadian who has lived in Japan for 30 years, thought he wasn’t asking too much of Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley, just a small part of what the law guarantees: up to 12 months of paid maternity or paternity leave and your job back.
