General Disability Law (Former LISMI Law)
The LGD (former LISMI law) establishes that all Spanish public and private companies, whose workforce (total number of employees regardless of the type of contract) is 50 or more workers, must have a "reserve quota in favour of people with disabilities". In other words, reserve 2% of the workforce for people with a disability equal to or greater than 33%.

the rights of persons with disabilities and their social inclusion.
Hire through Alternative Measures
It is possible to comply with the law thanks to a series of Alternative Measures in force in the current General Disability Law (upon request for a Certificate of Exceptionality). SERVIDIS in collaboration with the prestigious Asesoria Armando Sánchez Díaz we offer management services and legal advice for compliance with the LGD through these measures:
Hire a self-employed worker with a disability or a Special Employment Centre for the supply of raw materials, machinery, capital goods or any other type of goods necessary for the normal development of commercial activity.
Hire a self-employed worker with a disability or a Special Employment Centre for the provision of services that are not related to the normal activity of the company.
To make donations to non-profit organisations whose aim is the social integration of people with disabilities.
The constitution of a work enclave, after signing a contract with a Special Employment Centre.
For each Alternative Measure there are a number of amounts that must be met for each worker not directly employed on the workforce:
In the case of opting for a Special Employment Centre, the annual hiring amount must be at least three times the annual Multiple Effects Public Income Indicator (IPREM) per non-contracted disabled worker.
*For 2016 it is 19,170.39 euros (three times the IPREM of 6,390.13 euros).
In the case of donations or sponsorship activities, these must correspond to 1.5 the annual IPREM for each worker with non-contracted functional diversity.
*For 2016 it is 9,585.19 euros (1.5 times the IPREM of 7455.14 euros).
