The City Mayor's Office-Public Employment Services Office will launch the PWD Employment Desk at 9:30 a.m. today at the lobby of the Bacolod City Government Center in line with the observance of the National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
PESO head AnjoAyco said the PWD Employment Deskwill concentrate on helping persons with disability find employment. It will coordinate with business establishments in the city because there is a law that provides those who hire PWDs with tax incentives.
Ayco said they will invite business establishments and other civic clubs to attend the launching today.
Business establishments,who are open for hiring, will coordinate with PESO. The PESO will assist them by coordinating with the Department of Social Services and Development in the hiring of PWDs, he said.
Ayco said they have invited to the launching city officials led by the mayor, vice mayor and congressman. They will also try to invite the assistant regional director of the Department of Labor and Employment, he said.*CGS
