In all the provinces in which it operates, Hera complies with the obligations of Law no. 68/1999, which requires that personnel belonging to protected recruitment categories be hired in the proportion set forth in that law.

According to the regulations on the rights of people with disabilities to work, companies that, due to the special conditions of their business, cannot provide jobs to the entire percentage of entitled (disabled) workers, may apply for partial exemption from the obligation to hire on condition that they pay to the Regional Fund for the Employment of Disabled People a sum equal to Euro 30.64 for each worker not employed and for each working day not worked; the maximum percentage allowed is 60%. Hera also uses this option, which requires payments to the provincial governments by the individual Group companies if they employ fewer disabled people than required by law.

This regulation, that promotes the recruitment and integration into the working world of certain categories of people (disabled, orphans, etc.), also requires that the worker’s employment placement must abide by solutions agreed among the company, the regional employment office and the worker.

At the end of 2018, there were 394 persons belonging to the categories protected by Law no. 68/1999 working in Group companies: 327 (230 Hera, 69 AcegasApsAmga and 28 Marche Multiservizi) are present pursuant to art. 3 of the law (disabled).
