Ex-Nova teachers face firings half year on

Foreign and Japanese employees hired by Nova Corp.’s successor complained of unreasonable dismissals and pay cuts Saturday as they marked the half-year anniversary of the giant language school’s collapse.

Nagoya-based G.communication said it had hired about 1,400 foreign instructors by the end of December, but that about 400 of them had quit by the end of March.

G.education operates 169 language schools across Japan under the Nova name. Before going bankrupt, Nova was the biggest English language school chain in Japan.
