Living together. Living better.

The law to implement work life participation for people with disabilities was announced in the Federal Law Gazette on June 9, 2021 and promulgate last September 6, 2021.

The law establishes measures to improve the participation of disabled people by setting up points of contact with employers and providing them with reference persons. The aim is to persuade companies to employ severely disabled people.

Although companies that employ the disabled poorly have to pay a fine, few disabled persons are employed. The law establishes the designation of reference persons at the full disposal of employers, who can advise and support them in the training and employment of severely disabled persons.

The law also introduces free access to public infrastructure for assistance dogs, the integration of measures to protect against violence, the expansion of funds for the training of disabled people and the active promotion of employment in workplaces.
