Apply for multiple crediting for 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, this can be credited on application to more than 1 compulsory job, a maximum of 3 compulsory jobs. The prerequisite is that its 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 compulsory jobs by law.

If your company takes over or hires a severely disabled or equivalent disabled person after completing a completed training, this will be counted towards 2 compulsory jobs by law in the 1st year of employment.

You can submit an informal application for multiple crediting.

  • With your application, please contact the Employment Agency, which is responsible for you on site.
  • In order to be able to check the eligibility requirements, you will receive a form after the application has been submitted, with which the necessary facts are collected.

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

The responsible office is the employment agency in whose district the registered office of your company is located.
