New Disability Discrimination Dissolution Bill passed with future issue

 June 19, 2013

The Disability Discrimination Dissolution Bill which forbids the unjust discriminatory acts for reasons of disability passed on June 19.

Unless it became a too heavy burden to the public institution and the private business, the new law requires "reasonable accommodation" according to the state of a person with disability such as sex, age, and a kind of disability.

However, there is no concrete definition of discrimination in the new law, and the guideline which each ministry agency defines will affect everyday life greatly for three years.

The law will be reexamined three years later after the enforcement, and "efforts duty" by the private business may be highly redefined also.
