Rights for Rehabilitative Work to Final Readings


The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee approved, Sunday, a government bill, under which disabled people whose work is defined as rehabilitative will receive the same rights as other workers. The measure now goes to the Knesset for its second and third reading.

On the demand of Acting Committee Chairman Ilan Gilon, the bill was approved as a two-year extension of an emergency order, at which time, its effectiveness will be tested.
