The abovementioned communication must be made at least 7 (seven) days prior to the publication of the vacancy, via Portal Público de Emprego, email [email protected] or in hardcopy, according to the models approved by Decree no. 45/2023, of 03 August (Regulation on the Communication of Job Vacancies and Pre-professional Internships), in force since 03 August 2023.

Failure to comply with the duty to communicate may give rise to the following sanctions:

  • A fine corresponding to 2 (two) minimum salaries of the respective sector of activity – when made after publication;
  • A fine corresponding to 5 (five) minimum salaries of the respective sector of activity – when there is no communication.
