About the working conditions
Can I continue to receive unemployment benefit NASPI or DisColl?
Yes, a fixed-term contract (ex. day labour) does not compromise unemployment benefits, on the condition that the contract does not last more than 30 days. This period may be extended for a further 30 days. For 2020 the income shall not exceed 2.000 euro. The income ist taxed as usual.
What are the effects on the unemployment benefit if the contract lasts longer than 60 days?
Those who receive an unemployment benefit and work for more than 60 days have to report it to the NISF/INPS. The benefit will be suspended for the period of the contract (max. 6 months). In this case, we recommend to contact the patronat that has requested the benefit. There you can make the report to the NISF/INPS.
Am I insured and registred regularly?
Every employer has to report the employment contract to the employment agency, to make out a pay slip and to pay wages. This registration also provides for compulsory insurance (NISF/INPS) and accident insurance (INAIL).
How long does the employment contract last?
Employer and employee agree on the duration of the contract, which depends on the needs of the farm. Employment relationships in Italy are regulated by law and collective labour agreements.
How much do I earn?
The wage depends on working experience, education, responsability within the company ecc… Every worker is entitled to the wage fixed by the collective labour agreements. The employer can also pay more than provided in the collective agreements.
I benefit from a wage adjustment measure. May I work in agriculture?
Yes, if you are in wage adjustment and the contract with your employer is completely suspended, you have the possibility to work in agriculture without pay losses. The contract in agriculture must not exceed 30 days. This period is extendable for a further 30 days. The income 2020 in agriculture must not exceed 2.000 euro and will be taxed as usual.
What if I benefit from a partial wage adjustment measure?
Even in this case you may work in the agricultural sector, but the benefit is reduced by your effective working days. So, for the days you work regularly and earn a wage, you don’t get the benefit. With the registration at the employment office the report is sent to NISF/INPS. It’s very important to inform your employer, that you start a new temporary employment contract to avoid complications – especially when your employer advances the wage adjustment. In this case you have to show him your new paycheck. If NISF/INPS provides your wage adjustment, you have to give them your pay slip.
