On October 21, 2020, Law No. 21.275 was published, amending the Labor Code to require the relevant companies to adopt measures to facilitate the labor inclusion of workers with disabilities. In the core, this law provides for the following:
At least 1 of the workers in human resource-related functions and within companies with 100 or more workers it is required to have specific knowledge in areas that promote the employment inclusion of people with disabilities.
The aforementioned knowledge will be considered sufficient when they have a certification granted by the National System of Certification of Labor Competencies.
These companies must promote policies on matters of inclusion, which will be reported annually to the Labor Department, and must also prepare and execute annual training programs for their personnel.
This law will come into force on November 1, 2022.
