Italy’s budget features changes to parental leave, employment incentives, an early retirement scheme and a minimum income.
- Parental leave. New fathers must take five days of paternity leave — up from four. Expectant mothers don’t have to start their required five-month maternity leave until after the birth as long as there are no health risks. Flexible working requests from employees with disabled children and made by mothers within three years following maternity leave will be considered first.
