Working in Portugal guide

‘Working in Portugal’ guide launched in seven languages

New digital guide tackles key issues such as equality, discrimination and wages

Do you know what your rights as a foreign worker in Portugal are?

A new digital guide promises to answer your questions, having been launched by Portugal’s Working Conditions Authority (ACT) in seven languages (Portuguese, English, Bengali, Hindi, Nepali, Mandarin and Ukrainian).

The guide tackles several key issues for foreign workers, such as “equality, non-discrimination, wages, working hours, rest time, absences, training, parenthood, occupational health and safety, insurance and registration with Social Security.”

“With these guides, we aim to help everyone who arrives in our country to work and is, essentially, seeking better living conditions for themselves and their families, to settle in quicker and with more information,” said ACT General-Inspector, Fernanda Campos.

“Ensuring that we have dignified working conditions is the strongest contribution that ACT can make to a more open and global working world,” Campos added.
