General short description of the innovation
Fornero Reform strongly ruled most of the several flexible contracts. On one side it aimed at: a) introducing the possibility for employers to hire Fixed-Term contracts without justifing reason (acausale), lasting up to 12 months and not renewable; and regulating terms for re-employing the same worker and for the continuation of work beyond contract expriring date; b) fixed the minimum duration of Apprenticeship contracts at 6 months, the number of apprentices recruited and that of the new apprentices an employer can hire; c) Project-Works contracts do not require the in-progress scheduling of the job task assigned at the worker, and have been extended to VAT workers; d) Subsidiary work has solely the limit of the amount of 5000 euro per solar year, and has been allowed for some activities in agriculture and within the public sector /
