The NPA Remuneration Recommendation is a compensatory measure for the denial of labor rights. It has a function to ensure appropriate remuneration of national public employees that is adapted to general social conditions. The Recommendation is made on the basis of balancing the remuneration level of national public employees with the remuneration level of employees of private enterprises (the principle of following the private sector).

The NPA is endeavoring to appropriately carry out its responsibilities for decisions regarding remunerations and other working conditions of public employees by making recommendations to the Diet and the Cabinet regarding basic matters to be designated by laws and regulations and establishing or abolishing NPA Rules based on the statutory delegation of authority regarding concrete standards.
