Employers in Germany are required by the Social Security Code to employ severely handicapped persons. If they do not comply with this obligation, or if they do so inadequately, they must make a payment to the public department for the integration of disabled people responsible for the respective federal state for each unfilled mandatory job (job for persons with disabilities under the statutory quota system). This regulation applies to all employers who employ at least twenty people if they do not fill at least five percent of the jobs (mandatory employment quota) with severely disabled people. – By forcing employers to employ disabled people in this way, insurance companies in Germany are estimated to save up to EUR 3 billion a year, which they would otherwise have to pay as pensions to – mostly young – persons mainly of the male sex injured by careless behavior in road traffic.
