The Milleproroghe Decree converted into law  

5 March 2024

On 28 February 2024, Italian Law no.18 of 23 February 2024 was published in the Official Gazette no. 18, converting into law, with amendments, Italian Legislative Decree no. 215 of 30 December 2023 (so-called “Milleproroghe Decree”), containing urgent provisions regarding regulatory deadlines. 

A significant innovation contained in the conversion law concerns fixed-term contracts: in particular Article 18, paragraph 4-bis of the Law in question extends from 30 April 2024 to 31 December 2024 the employer’s and worker’s ability to identify the technical, organisational or production needs necessary to exceed the overall 12 months of duration of the employment relationship. 

In addition, the right of so-called “vulnerable” workers to work remotely is extended from 31 March 2024 to 30 June 2024, including through assignment to a different task included in the same category or classification area. This extension also applies to parents employed in the private sector who have at least one child under the age of 14, provided that in the family unit there is no other parent benefiting from income support tools in the event of suspension or termination of the work activity or that there is no non-working parent, and on the further condition that remote working is compatible with the work to be provided.
