Azerbaijan is considering creating job quotas in departments, organizations and institutions for people with disabilities.
Article 22 (employment of people with disabilities) of the new bill on protection of the rights of people with disabilities determines quotas to employ them in departments, organizations and institutions.
People with disabilities are employed on quotas on the basis of the instruction of the relevant executive authority. Employers, who refuse to hire people with disabilities sent by the relevant executive authorities to positions determined by quotas, shall be liable in accordance with the law.
The bill will be tabled at the meeting of the Parliament’s Labor and Social Policy Committee on January 25.
