Articolo 18

Article 18 of Italy's 1970 Workers' Statute has long been seen as the law that makes entrepreneurs say they can divorce their spouses but not their employees. It expanded protection typically granted against religious, sexual and ethnic discrimination into a blanket norm for all companies with more than 15 employees, saying that if a judge rules that a worker has suffered an unlawful dismissal, the worker must be reinstated. The government of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi changed the law: now, if the dismissal is ruled unlawful, the employee isn’t reinstated and gets an economic compensation (no more than 24 months salary). In case of discrimination, nothing changes: the worker must be reinstated.
