Act no 247/2007 repealed the 1999 and 2003 discipline on conventions to facilitate the disabled persons' participation to the labor market. These conventions could play a crucial role as regards the employment of the disabled, but they also show critical features in relation to both their efficacy and the possibility to be misused. Scholars and the periodic Relation to the Parliament on the implementation of Act no 68/1999 had already drawn attention to these points. The 2007 intervention, however, did not solve the existing problems; the Act is ambiguous since it is not coherent with the purposes of the legislation on the matter and provides for new economic incentives without authorizing their financing. In order to make the right to work of the disabled effective, also other paths must be experimented such as that of the existing anti-discriminatory legislation.
