Advertising giant Dentsu Inc. said Tuesday it will pay about ¥2.4 billion to its employees next month in unpaid overtime for the two years up to March 2017 following its conviction of labor practice violations.

Some workers at Dentsu refrained from reporting overtime when they were checking data or doing other office work beyond their regular hours, regarding the extra hours as “self-improvement” activities, the company said.
