Foreign workers:

What you need to know about employment in Italy

Legal minimum wage

Employers are expected to be fully aware of and apply human resources legislation and regulations. This is not always possible, especially when employees are stationed abroad. In that case, you must be able to count on a solid partner who has all the knowledge in-house. At Interfisc, we take care of your employees across the border, allowing you to fully focus on your core business.

Local employees in Italy, with or without a registered place of business

In several countries, it is possible to offer your products or services through a local employee without the need to have your own registered office there for this purpose. This can, however, often be subject to certain restrictions as to the nature of your activities as a foreign company without a registered office in the country in question.

Please also note that, in principle, Italian social security will apply to your employees residing in Italy, whether they work exclusively or partially in that country. In addition, Italian tax regulations will apply to the income they earn in Italy and you will be obliged to observe Italian employment law.

Payroll costs in Italy

One of the first questions you could be confronted with before taking on an employee in Italy, is the high level of payroll costs in the country.

In our factsheet Personnel in Italy, available for downloading below, please find an overview of the employee benefits package that is customary in Italy and the associated costs, calculated on an annual basis.

The cost overview gives an insight into the terms and conditions of employment that are customary in Italy, based on which you can decide whether it is worth having an employee in Italy. As soon as you make this decision, we will be happy to help you make a suitable offer for your employee, so you will be well prepared for negotiating with your employee.

Additional employer obligations in Italy

In view of the complexity and, possibly, inadequate internal knowledge of Italian legislation in your organisation, we recommend that you do not limit yourself to reviewing the financial side! Our fact sheets provide a detailed explanation of the sections that make up the cost overview. We also give an overall picture of the Italian rules concerning:

  • Employment law
  • Social security
  • Taxes
  • Employee benefits
  • Health & well-being
