According to the city government , a former male employee abused a child twice in May-July 2019. The male employee retired in August of the same year, but the city said that he was in violation of the obligation to respect persons with disabilities as specified by the Child Welfare Law. The city has not confirmed abuse of other users.
“According to the Hyogo Prefectural Government , last year the service claimed a total of 20 days for nine users who actually didn’t use the service, but nonetheless claimed compensation. Takarazuka City requests return of the renumeration based on the Child Welfare Law.”
