ECOP Airs Concern Over Mandatory PWD Hiring in BPOs


Apr 19 - The Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) has aired some concern over pending bills that propose to impose penalties on companies that fail to employ people with disabilities (PWDs) for up to two percent of the number of new job vacancies at the company. ECOP stressed that there are specific sectors where such requirements would be difficult or impossible to implement such as business process outsourcing (BPO) companies.

The group cited that in a BPO with 30,000 operators, at least 300 positions for PWDs should be held, but Sergio Ortiz-Luis Jr, acting ECOP president, pointed out that considering the nature of skills required by BPOs, it is a certainty that most of these reserved positions will remain unfilled over time.
