Labor and Employment Law

It was published today in the Official Gazette Law no. 4/2019, of January 10th, which aims to promote the engagement of disabled persons and their introduction in the labor market, through the establishment of a mandatory quota system for disabled persons, with a disability degree equal or superior to 60%, in the employer’s headcount.
Decree-Law no. 119/2018, of December 27, was published in the Official Gazette, amending the legal framework for early retirements, namely easing the possibility of early retirement to beneficiaries with longer careers, reducing the age upon which those beneficiaries may request their early retirement and reducing the cuts currently in force for retirement pensions. These amendments allow Social Security beneficiaries to, in each specific case, be entitled to the better regime in terms of early retirement.
