Portugal Sets Disability Quota for Certain Firms
Calendar18 January 2019

Portuguese companies must comply with a new disabled employee quota of 1% to 2%, depending on their workforce size — firms with between 75 and 100 employees will have a 1% quota, increasing to 2% for those with more than 100 employees. To be considered disabled, employees must be at least 60% incapacitated. Effective 11 Jan 2019, the law (Portuguese) allows a transitional period for firms to achieve the applicable quota — five years for firms with 75 to 100 employees, and four years for firms with more than 100 employees.
