New information obligations in the employment contract are on the way

Back to All Thought Leadership

The Council of Ministers in the meeting of 31 March 2022 approved the draft legislative decree for the implementation of the EU Directive 2019/1152 relating to transparent and predictable working conditions in the European Union.

The deadline for the transposition of the directive is 1 August 2022 .

The draft decree – which will amend the legislative decree of 26 May 1997, n. 152, which contains the provisions currently in force on the subject – it does not limit itself to transposing the contents of the directive on information obligations to the worker, but also establishes the ” minimum requirements relating to working conditions ” which will be the subject of a subsequent article .

The information obligations apply to the subordinate employment contract, including the agricultural one, for open-ended, fixed-term and part-time contracts; to the temporary and intermittent employment contract; to collaborative relationships with mainly personal and ongoing services organized pursuant to Article 2, par. 1, Legislative Decree n. 81/2015; to the coordinated and continuous collaboration contract pursuant to art. 409, paragraph 1, n. 3 cpc; to the occasional service contract as well as to other employment relationships (seafarers and domestic workers) (see art. 1 of the scheme).
