Control rules have been developed. For this purpose the registers of other institutions will be used, inspections will be carried out on site in the enterprises, BNR reports.

A company with a staff of 50 to 99 people must work at least one person with permanent disability.

The quota for companies with 100 and more than 100 employees is two percent of the list.

The possibility for a business not to be sanctioned for non-compliance is to purchase a product or use services from specialised enterprises of and for people with disabilities worth two minimum wages for each not employed.

Part of the business may choose to pay a monthly compensation fee – it is 30% of the minimum wage for each not employed.
