Disability Law signed

President Benigno S. Aquino III has signed a law expanding the work positions reserved for persons with disability. Republic Act No. 10524 stated that at least one percent of all positions in government agencies, offices or corporations shall be reserved for persons with disability.

Private corporations with more than 100 employees are also encouraged to reserve one percent of all positions for people with disability. The new law, which amended RA 7277 or the Magna Carta for Persons with Disability, seeks to promote equal job opportunity for persons with disability. (Genalyn D. Kabiling)
