This measure can be combined with  other  measures that provide for full or  partial  exemption from contributions to the Social Security system; it cannot, however, be  combined with other direct measures applicable to the same job position.

The fixed-term employment contracts supported under  Measure Stimulus 2013 can  benefit from the conversion of the  employment contracts  into permanent  employment  contracts provided for in Ordinance No. 106/2013 of March 14. This Medida Estimulo Emprego came into force today.
