Compliance with quota legislation

Quota legislation exists in many European countries.

Quota legislation establishes an obligation for employers with more than a certain number of employees to employ a minimum percentage of people with disabilities (the range of quotas is between 2 and 5%).

In some countries this obligation can be met through alternative options, which might include the payment of a compensation fee to a special fund for the employment of people with disabilities or the purchase of products and/or services from special companies (sheltered workshops) whose workforce is mainly composed of people with disabilities.
