Employment quotas for people with disabilities

Large companies (those with more than 250 employees) must hire workers with disabilities in a number not less than 2 % of the staff in their service.

From 1 February 2019, with the entry into force of Law no. 4/2019 of 10 January, quotas are established for employers in the private and the public sectors (excluded from Decree-Law no. 29/2001 of 3 February). These quotas mean that employers with more than 75 workers will be required to hire people with disabilities, with a degree of incapacity of 60 % or more.
