Romania expands protections for employees with a disability

Romania expands protections for employees with a disability

Employees with a disability now have stronger workplace legal protections under Law No. 145 (Romanian). Employers are required to make reasonable adjustments — including adapting workplaces, work schedules and tasks — to accommodate employees with a disability. Employers that don’t adapt their workplaces could be fined between RON 10,000 and RON 25,000.

The government is expected to announce a quota for the employment of disabled people — applicable to employers with 50 or more employees. Employers that don’t meet the quota could be fined between RON 25,000 and RON 50,000 and may have to pay a sum of money to the state (yet to be announced).
