DoLE grants incentive to firms hiring PWDs

LABOR Sec. Silvestre Bello III

Companies that will hire more persons with disabilities (PWDs) will receive an incentive, according to Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) secretary Sivestre Bello III in a job fair exclusively for PWDs.

Bello said that firms which will hire PWDs will receive a year-long immunity
from inspections, but he clarified that the immunity will not necessarily mean that companies involved will be exempted from charges if they violated labor laws.

Organized by DoLE, the one-day fair was held at the Quezon City Hall in partnership with the Rotary Clubs of District 3830.
