Baguio City to discuss PWD rights in BPO sector

The Baguio City council has set off a consultation involving persons with disabilities (PWDs) and officials of the city’s IT-BPM sectors to discuss, among other issues, employment matters. The forum is focused on PWD Baguio IT-BPO employees’ rights, welfare and safety, and PWDs’ legislative action and consultations assessment. The public hearing’s aim is to aid the council committee in crafting quality legislation to benefit persons with disabilities, to look closely at PWDs business interests and employees’ rights; and ensure full participation during the PWDs general assembly. Also to be discussed are the alleged illegal policies and practices of some IT-BPM companies in the cities in relation to PWD employees.
