Compensatory levy for the non-employment of severely disabled persons Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The compensatory levy is paid by employers who cannot (or cannot fully) meet an obligation to employ severely disabled persons. The revenues from this then flow back into the companies and departments that employ severely disabled people or create jobs for them. Use: The funds collected through the equalization levy are used by the Office for Care and Integration Bremen - Integration Office - for special services to promote the participation of severely disabled people in working life, including accompanying financial or advisory assistance in working life.

Preconditions
Employers who have at least 20 jobs. For small businesses (20 - 59 jobs) the following special regulation applies: Between 20 - 39 workplaces employers pay Euro 125.00 per month if they employ less than 1 severely handicapped person per year on average Between 40 - 59 workplaces employers pay Euro 125.00 per month if they employ less than 2 severely disabled persons on average per year and Euro 220.00 if they employ less than 1 severely disabled person per year

Hints
Employers can offset part of the invoice amount (50% of the work performed by the workshop) against the compensation levy to be paid for contracts they award to recognised workshops for disabled people. You can find further information and the notice at www.IW-Elan.de .
By 31 March of each year, employers with 20 or more workplaces must submit a notification for the previous year to the competent employment agency for each company. The equalization levy to be paid will be calculated by the employers themselves and will also be paid to the Office for Supply and Integration Bremen - Integration Office - by March 31. For amounts in arrears, the Office for Care and Integration Bremen charges late payment surcharges.
