With the emphasis of adjusting the demands of the people themselves Sight of disability to the new reality of the working world, the undersecretary of labour, the undersecretary of social services and the National Service of the disability presented the 21 proposals of the labour inclusion table.
The main axes of the proposals are: to achieve a system of qualification and certification of the most expeditious disability, collaborative control, improving access to job offers, training and education for people with disabilities, and More clarity on alternative measures.
In the instance it was also announced that currently about 13000 Chileans with disabilities have been incorporated into a job by the private world, of which 71% have an indefinite contract.
However, the figures are still due after one year of the implementation of the Labour Inclusion Act 21,015. According to government data, jobs for people with disabilities should reach 27500 jobs.
Why have these numbers not been fulfilled? According to Matías Poblete, president of Fundación Chilena de la disability, «the spirit of law 21,015 is to generate labor inclusion. However, many institutions, both public and private, see this regulation from the perspective of the obligation to hire 1% of workers in a situation of disability, devaluing the sense of the norm that has to do with transforming the Work spaces in environments that are inclusive. »
For his part, Congresswoman RN and chair of the cross-sectional disability, Catalina del Real, said that «the announcement by the undersecretary of Labor Fernando Arab is an advance to reach the proposed goal of more than 27000 jobs. This is a commitment of all companies in Chile, because in regions there are many people in a situation of disability and is where there are still people who do not find employment.
«We have seen the fulfillment of the quota in the metropolitan region, in the Biobío region and in the Valparaíso region, which are the largest. However, the north and south ends still have shortcomings in this aspect, «complemented the Chilean parliamentarian Vamos.
Also, Matías Poblete emphasized the discrimination that exists towards people in situations of disability in the processes of job selection, where «the entities discriminate against the applicants under this condition by type or degree of disability and not by their Competences, which according to Law 21,009, which establishes anti-discrimination norms, would infringe the rights of persons in a situation of disability, putting the focus on the problem that the applicant presents and not on his labour competencies. »
Finally, Poblete asserted that, although the stockings of the bureau come to cover a large part of the needs detected from the implementation of the law, «it is necessary to consider a proposal that says relationship to incorporate some tax franchise That allows companies to hire people in a situation of disability, to make use of this franchise for the implementation of accessibility measures, both infrastructure, technologies and information. »
