Employment & Pensions

Italy

For your business to be successful, you must manage your employees and their benefits as well as your employee representatives. Employment and pension law in Europe is complex and, at times, contradictory. Italy is no exception to this. European directives, European court decisions, national laws, local cases and precedents must all be taken into account by your management team.

The Italian employment team deals with redundancy procedures, collective agreements as well as advising on labour contentious matters. Our 280-strong European group of sector specialists can help you navigate the maze of HR regulations and other legal complexities you may contend with on a daily basis.

If your business crosses borders, you will be faced with additional legal hurdles before achieving the outcome you need. With a global network covering 34 countries, we can help solve your problems across all the jurisdictions in which you operate - whether your issue relates to employment contracts, pension schemes, redundancies, M&A, trade union/staff representative relations or litigation. Should you require employment related assistance in Italy, you can count on our team’s assistance.

The backbone of our local practice is formed by union-management relations, employment discrimination disputes, redundancy procedures, negotiation of collective agreements as well as advising on labour contentious matters before Italian courts. We aim for long term economic success for you and offer far sighted solutions whatever you do.
