Apply for multiple creditings to more than one compulsory job for the employment of severely disabled people


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

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

If you train a severely disabled or equivalent disabled person in your company, this will be counted towards 2 mandatory jobs by law.

If your company takes over or hires a severely disabled or equivalent disabled person after completing training, he will be credited to 2 mandatory jobs by law in the 1st year of employment.

If your company employs severely disabled or assimilated disabled people, you can, under certain conditions, have them credited to more than 1 compulsory job.

For multiple crediting, you can submit an informal application.

  • With your application, contact the Employment Agency in person, telephone or in writing, which is responsible for your local authority.
  • In order for the Employment Agency to be able to check the requirements, you will then receive a form in which you must provide some information.
  • The Employment Agency will examine your application.
  • You will receive a written notification as to whether your application has been approved or rejected.

If you train a severely disabled or equally disabled person in your company, the compulsory job is automatically credited twice. You do not need to submit an application for this.

In order to have a person credited to more than 1 mandatory job, you must observe the following requirements:

  • Your company employs at least 20 people.
  • The person is
    • severely disabled or
    • equal to a severely disabled person.
  • Multiple crediting is particularly suitable for the employment of people,
    • who permanently need a special assistant in order to be able to carry out the employment,
    • whose employment is not only temporarily associated with extraordinary expenses for your business,
    • which can only provide a substantially reduced work performance in the long term,
    • in which there is a degree of disability of at least 50 solely as a result of mental or emotional disability,
    • who, because of the nature or severity of the disability, do not have completed vocational training within the meaning of the Vocational Training Act,
    • whose participation in working life is further complicated (for example, by a lack of permanent residence, drug or penalty release background).
  • Employment can improve the possibility of participation in working life.
  • They must set out in concrete terms the particular difficulties that have arisen in terms of maintaining employment. The following reasons may include:
    • a significant reduction in performance due to the nature and severity of the disability at the workplace
    • disability-related restrictions cannot be compensated by the use of (technical) work aids
    • significant limitation in the area of responsibility or area of application
    • significantly higher control or support effort
    • special difficulties in the person, such as criminal record, addiction
  • Proof that the person you employ is severely disabled or treated as a severely disabled person, for example by copying the severely disabled person's identity card
  • The employer gives specific reasons as to the particular difficulties with regard to maintaining the job.

The processing of your application usually takes between 3 and 9 months.
