The Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry said Tuesday it has designated failed Nissan Construction Co. eligible for an employment aid program.

The program is for two years beginning Wednesday. During the period, the government will provide subsidies to Nissan Construction and its business partners when they make payments for leave allowances or job training for workers.

In late March, Nissan Construction filed for court protection under the Corporate Rehabilitation Law with group liabilities estimated at 114.6 billion yen.
