On the number 18/2020 of Labor Law and Practice the following article by Avv. Andrea Loro has been published.
The Court of Cassation, with order no. 21672/2019, addresses the issue of the specificity requirement of the substitute reasons that must be indicated in the fixed-term employment contract, as a validity requirement of the same. Although the concrete fact relates to a contract stipulated in 2010 (and, therefore, in the validity of an outdated regulatory framework), the principles expressed can also be applied with reference to the standards currently in force and, in particular, with reference to the art. 19, paragraph 1, Legislative Decree n. 81/2015 (as amended by Legislative Decree no. 87/2018).
