New law to dissolve discrimination against persons with disabilities to be enforced in 2016

April 10, 2013

The government provided the outline of a bill called the "disabled persons discriminating dissolution propulsion bill" (tentative name) to the person in charge of each party (the Liberal Democratic Party, Komei, and Democratic Party) on April 9.

In addition to education, public traffic, medical treatment, etc., government officials mentioned "criminal proceedings" in the field of the public sectors which will be the target of legal liability of discriminating dissolution.

As act enforcement time, it is considered for April, 2016. It is supposed that the law will be reviewed for improvement in the third year after the enforcement.

The government is planning to get a Cabinet decision on April 26, 2013 and to submit the bill in the current Diet session.
