New protections against employment-related disabilities discrimination were issued by the labor ministry Nov. 17 (Order No. 777). The new regulation aims to protect disabled employees and crack down on violations of their rights such as denial of employment or unfair dismissal.
The new rules require regional governmental employment agencies to help disabled individuals find jobs, encourage those who face employment-related discrimination to contact local employment agencies or the Federal Labor and Employment Service, request compliance audits of employers suspected of discrimination, and monitor employer compliance with government-approved quotas for hiring the disabled.
Whether disabled employees are in fact being discriminated against, however, can only be established by court rulings.
Among signs of direct discrimination, the order notes denial of employment, career development, or training opportunities; lack of access to information about employment opportunities for disabled people, including vacancies reserved for disabled workers in accordance with the government-approved quotas; refusal to remove features within the workplace that create a disadvantage for a disabled employee; refusal to hire people with disabilities for remote jobs; and anything else that puts disabled workers at a disadvantage compared with employees who are not disabled.
