NO AGE LIMIT and NO AGE DISCRIMINATION AT WORK IS NOW A LAW!



 



This law, the RA 10991 is a landmark anti-age discrimination employment law and a employment discrimination settlements for many years that older people are deprived of the opportunity to continue to earn for a living. We were active since two years ago in opposing the age and gender discrimination at the workplace

Some good news to the overseas Filipinos and workers in their 40's, 50's and 60'. Workplace age discrimination, and age discrimination during the recruitment process no more.  The No discrimination at work law, Republic Act No. 10911 (RA 10911) or an Act Prohibiting Discrimination Against Any Individual in Employment on Accounts of Age has lapsed into a bill and is now a law. Government agencies are finalizing the rules and regulations in implementing this landmark bill turn-into-law against discrimination based on age

DOLE or the Department of Labor and Employment vowed to enforce the implementation of the Anti-Age Discrimination Act or this no discrimination law that prohibits employment age discrimination or turning down an applicant on the basis of his age or being "old". 
“Hindi mag-aatubili ang Department of Labor and Employment yung strict implementation ng batas na ito. (The Department of Labor and Employment will not hesitate to strictly implement this law),” - Undersecretary Joel Manglunsod.

ako naman at 45 yrs old basta wag lang mapili sa trabaho, although sa totoo lang hindi rin ako makapasok ng trabaho sa atin dahil ang daming hinahanap. age, height, school graduated...mga iyan ang mga kadalasan tinitignan nila. As per my experience kaya most of the time nasa ibang bansa ako to work. Nandto ako Qatar...From UAE Dubai to Doha Qatar 40yrs old ako nag start mag work middle east so far so good wala silang pakialam sa age basta may potential ka at alam mo ang pinapasukan mo.

sa mga agency na napuntahan ko ay may agee limit, unang tanong kung ilang taon ka na, kahit na sa mga nakapost sa work broad, mostly age rage is 25yrs to 45yrs old pasok,
ex abroad po ko at 10 years ako sa isang government co. sa saudi, napauwi ako kasi policy daw 10 years sa company
ako po ay 52 yrsold na at alam ko na fit to work pa ako, kaya problema ko paano ako makabalik muli,
my mga nakita ako na agency na no age limit papunta namn sa new zealand pero ang problema ko naman ay ung police clearnce manggagaling sa saudi,

Am a retired govt employee and am 61 now, can I go back or apply again to government agency irregardless of my age?

As per shared by Mr.Thotskoto..
Sabi sa article nagpalabas na ng batas for strict implementation ng NO Age descrimination. So bale this is a good thing po.. Actually nkapagtrabaho na din po ako sa isang food processing company & over age na din po ako sa preffered age nila.. & pinalad nman po ako nakpagtrabaho po sa company nila.
I think sa perspective lang po cguro at sa pagiging honest at passion/aggresive po dun sa job opening.. It will show nman po kung pano po natin maexpress yung sarili natin dun sa interviewer, and back it up din ng qualification/experiences na relevant dun sa job na inaapplyan natin taz samahan na din po natin ng dasal pra mas maging mataas or malaki yung probability na mahire po tayo..
Goodluck po sa ating mga job seekers!
