Croatia - Requirements for employing persons with disabilities 

April 22:  A new law establishes the required percentages of persons with disabilities who must be employed.

An employer who employs 50 or more employees must employ persons with disabilities as a percentage of the total workforce, with the percentage ranging from 2% to 6%.

  • For example, the percentage of persons with disabilities that must be employed if the employer performs wholesale activities and financial and insurance activities is 2%.
  • Employers in the construction and real estate sectors must have 3% of the workforce comprised of persons with disabilities in their employment.
  • The health care sector requires employment of 6% of employees with disabilities.

These percentages are reduced by one percentage point for employers have 20 or more but less than 50 employees, but the total percentage cannot be less than 2%.
