Labor Laws in Italy

While considering an executive search in Italy, it is important to familiarize yourself with Italian labor laws. Here are some Italian labor law points to know during your company’s executive search.

Most contracts of employment in Italy are considered indefinite. Italian labor laws only allow fixed-term contracts in the case of seasonal work, replacement work, or temporary work.

According to Italian labor laws, an employee cannot exceed eight hours a day, or 48 hours a week. An interim manager or any other employee who works more than 40 hours a week is eligible for overtime. Overtime pay must be at least 10 percent higher than the normal working wage, though it is often closer to 30 percent in most of Italy.

All employees in Italy are entitled to a minimum of eight days paid leave per year, though most companies authorize up to 21 days of paid vacation per year of employment. Maternity leave for expecting mothers is given two months before the birth of a child, and for three months after birth.

Italian Business Culture

Italian culture is strongly rooted in the connection to family and friends. This strongly interconnected approach in general Italian culture is also prevalent in Italian business structure. Many may presume this type of relationship-oriented approach would only be suitable for local business, but rest assured this same principle is also applied in globalized businesses throughout Italy.

Italian Business Background

Italian companies do embody a high degree of hierarchy; however, the company organization chart will not always reflect the employees’ functions within the company realistically. It is important in Italian business to see hierarchy as an area with some shades of grey. The structure of the company’s hierarchy is defined by the networking of relationships prevalent throughout the company. Personal ties and loyalty do trump job title in Italian business culture.
