Matsuri Takahashi, 24, jumped to her genocide in Dec final year and in a note left for her mother, she asked: “Why do things have to be so hard?”.

She had started operative during Dentsu in Apr 2015 and was shortly doing an additional 100 hours a month.

Dentsu has been underneath vigour to revoke a volume of overtime a employees do and in Nov it was raided by work regulators.

In September, a Japanese supervision ruled that Ms Takahashi’s genocide had been caused by overwork. She would mostly lapse home during 5am after spending all day and night during a office.

On Wednesday, Mr Ishii, who has been arch executive in 2011, said: “This is something that should never have been authorised to happen.”

While Dentsu is attempting to diminish overwork – by branch off lights during a domicile during 10pm – it certified that some-more than 100 workers were still doing an additional 80 hours a month.
