TOKYO – On February 25th, a joint session of the Liberal Democratic Party’s Cabinet First Subcommittee approved an amendment to the Disability Discrimination Law. The amendment requires companies to provide “reasonable accommodation” to support the movement and communication of persons with disabilities as far as possible. The government will make a cabinet decision in early March, aiming to pass it in the current Diet session. Reasonable accommodation is assumed to be the installation of slopes on steps and written conversations with people with hearing disabilities.
