The information sheet for the disabled, required under Law No. 68/89, must be submitted between 15 and 31 January 2011. The submission time frame has been shortened, according to the Ministry of Labour, to offset the technical time necessary to update the software application that allows employers to complete this form online. Companies which employed at least 15 staff members at 31 December 2010 are required to complete and submit this form (companies which employed between 15 and 35 staff members are required to submit the form only if they hired a new staff member after the 15th). Decree Law No. 112/08 (converted by Law No. 133/08) has partially modified the regulations on the obligation to submit the form, giving employers the option to not resubmit the sheet if no changes have taken place since the previous year that would imply a change in the obligation to hire disabled persons.
