Apply for multiple credit for more than one compulsory job for the employment of severely disabled persons


As an employer with at least 20 workplaces, you must fill 5 percent of your workplaces with severely disabled employees or employees with an equivalent status (mandatory workplaces).

If you as an employer employ a severely disabled person or a person with an equivalent disability, this person can be credited with more than 1 compulsory job, up to a maximum of 3 compulsory jobs, upon application. The prerequisite is that their participation in working life encounters particular difficulties.

If you train a severely disabled person or a person with an equivalent disability in your company, this person is counted towards 2 compulsory jobs by law.

If your company takes on or hires a severely disabled person or a person with an equivalent disability following a completed training program, this person will by law be counted towards 2 compulsory jobs in the first year of employment.

To be able to count a person towards more than 1 compulsory job, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Your company employs at least 20 employees.
  • The person is
    • severely disabled or
    • equal to a severely disabled person.
  • Multiple crediting is particularly applicable to the employment of people,
    • who permanently require a special assistant to perform the employment,
    • whose employment is not only temporarily associated with extraordinary expenses for your company,
    • who are permanently only able to perform work at a significantly reduced level,
    • who have a degree of disability of at least 50 solely as a result of mental or psychological handicap,
    • who, due to the nature or severity of the disability, have not completed vocational training within the meaning of the Vocational Training Act,
    • whose participation in working life is additionally impeded (for example, due to lack of a fixed abode, drug or criminal background).
  • Employment can improve the possibility of participation in working life.
  • You must specifically state what special difficulties have arisen with respect to obtaining the job. Reasons may include:
    • a substantial reduction in performance as a result of the nature and severity of the disability in the workplace
    • disability-related limitations cannot be compensated by the use of (technical) work aids
    • substantial restriction in the field of activity or application
    • substantially higher control or support expenditure
    • special difficulties inherent in the person, such as criminal record, addiction disease
  • Proof of status as a severely disabled person or equal status, e.g. by means of a copy of the severely disabled person's ID card.
  • Concrete justification by the employer as to which particular difficulties exist with regard to obtaining the job.
  • For detailed information on how to file an appeal, please refer to the decision on your application.
