Disciplinary Procedures for Violation of Law for Inclusion of People with Disabilities

New Legislation Enacted

Author: Jaime Solís, Partner – BDS, Member of Littler Global

On August 31, 2023, the Legislative Chamber of El Salvador once again voted, via expedited process, to postpone the entry into force of the Disciplinary Measures Chapter of the Special Law for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities. The law became enforceable in January of 2021, except for the chapter that regulates the disciplinary measures that would apply for violations of its provisions. The Legislative Chamber has now voted four times to postpone this chapter's effective date in order to study how to properly execute the provisions contained therein.

As it now stands, this chapter will not go into effect until March 31, 2024.
