MOSCOW, December 03, 12:37 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia should tackle problems related to employment of disabled persons by 2020, Labor and Social Protection Minister Maxim Topilin told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“We want to fully resolve the problem related to employment of persons with disabilities by 2020,” he said, adding that the employment rate of people with disabilities currently totals 40%. The statistics shows only those persons with disabilities who have been registered at employment services.
“As of November 1, we have employed 11,500 disabled persons over ten months,” Topilin said, recalling that it was necessary to create 14,200 jobs for persons with disabilities this year.
Russian regions have an opportunity to set workplace quotas for persons with disabilities at enterprises employing from 35 to 100 workers.
“According to our estimates, when regions adopt such laws, around 300,000 jobs for persons with disabilities will be created,” he said.
