Good news| Duterte Administration to Implement R.A. 10911 Anti-Age Discrimination Law on Feb. 17

Balita Ngayon | Batas na po ang Anti-age discrimination law (R.A. 10911). Simula sa February 17.

Good news for everyone. The Department of Labor and Employment says age doesn’t matter in employment. That is part of the new Anti-age discrimination law passed last August. Labor secretary Silvestre Bello III signed the implementing rules and regulations for the new law on February 2. It’s expected to take effect February 17. Bello says the law will promote equal opportunities in employment.

Principal author of the law, House Deputy Speaker Pia Cayetano, says she is “delighted” the law is ready for implementation. In a statement, she said the age discriminatory practice in the country has made a huge impact on those in a productive age bracket, especially among women who chose to leave the workforce to raise their children first. Under the law, employers are now prohibited from hiring workers based on age, but with exemptions. Violators may be fined up to ₱500,000 or face 2 years behind bars.
