German term or phrase: Gleichgestellter
Es geht um einen Sozialplan und um die Berechnung von Abfindungen.

"Anerkannte Schwerbehinderte und ***Gleichgestellte*** mit amtlichem Ausweis erhalten einen Zusatzbetrag von x."

ProZ.com search ergab "on equal terms",
LEO ergab "peers".

Beides scheint mir hier nicht zu passen.

agree  David Moore: persons similarly classified (sounds better to me!)./ Thanks, Ingeborg.// Perhaps "of SIMILAR status"?

  -> I still prefer "with equivalent status". Classified for a person is a bit harsh methinks

agree  Ingeborg Gowans: w/ David: sounds more elegant
