As advanced by the Portuguese Government and in order to face the new demands of a general confinement, several legal diplomas were approved and published which resulted in (i) changes to supports already in force, and (ii) the introduction of new support.
Following Decree No. 3-A/2021 of 14 January which regulates the state of emergency decreed by the Portuguese President and in order to respond to the movement of people that was observed during the first days of the new confinement, the Government decided to proceed with the first amendments to the aforementioned Decree imposing more restrictive measures to face the accelerated growth of the pandemic in Portugal.
The Decree Law 101-E/2020, of 7th December, which entered into force on 8th December 2020, one day after it was published in the Official Gazette, transposed into national law the Directive (EU) 2018/957 of The European Parliament and of the Council of 28 June 2018, regarding posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services in the European Union.
