A special job fair has been slated exclusively for persons with disability, promising disadvantaged members of the community in Metro Manila with employment, livelihood and training opportunities, the Department of Labor and Employment announced yesterday.
The event is a joint undertaking with the Rotary Clubs of District 3830 in observance of the International Day for persons with disabilities. The exclusive offering is also part of the anniversary celebration of the labor department which turns 85 this year.
Close to a hundred private companies and government agencies are expected to participate and ready to take in qualified persons with disabilities into their workforce in the fair set on December 5 at the Quezon City Hall starting at 8 am.
The special activity will highlight compliance with the law mandating offices of government to set aside one percent of the positions to persons with disabilities. The same law, Republic Act 10524, encourages private enterprises with more than 100 employees to reserve one percent of their workforce to the disadvantaged persons.
The Rotary Clubs from District 3830 mobilized employers from various parts of Metro Manila to the activity.
