Exceptional burdens associated with the employment of severely disabled people, benefits to employers Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In the case of the employment of severely disabled people, the employer may in curfew a personnel and/or financial effort in individual cases, which significantly exceeds the usual level of the company. The Integration Office may grant the employer financial resources from the compensatory levy to cover this special effort in the context of the accompanying assistance in working life. There are two types of exceptional loads: Personnel support (also referred to as special care costs), i.e. exceptional expenses in the form of additional personnel costs of other employees, sometimes also external supervisors. This means support and care for the severely disabled person at work. Examples are the reading force for blind people, the workplace contact for deaf or mentally handicapped people, but also the constantly required assistance of work colleagues in the execution of work as well as disability-related long or recurrent instruction in the workplace, for example by the master in a mentally handicapped person. Underperformance/compensation, i.e. the pro-rata wage costs of such severely disabled people whose work performance, for reasons of disability, falls significantly short of the average of comparable employees in the company.
