Approve equality of disabled people with severely disabled people

Service Description

There are 2 situations in the labor market under which you can become equal to severely disabled people:

  • You want to have a job or
  • You would like to keep your job.

With equality, you basically have the same status as severely disabled people.

This means, for example, that

  • special protection against dismissal
  • Assistance with workplace equipment
  • Support from special specialist services
  • Employment incentives for employers (such as wage subsidies)

However, additional leave, free public transport and special old-age pensions are excluded.

If you enjoy special protection against dismissal, for example because you work as a civil servant in the public sector, you must be able to give good reasons why you want to be treated equally to severely disabled people. For example, you must be able to explain why your job is less secure because of your disability than that of a non-disabled colleague. There must be concrete reasons related to your disability, for example, if you are threatened with early retirement due to your disability.
