Contratto a tempo indeterminato
Permanent, or open-ended employment contract. In Italy these contracts are de facto "jobs for life," and are often pointed to as the main culprit of Italy's stagnant labor market. The labor reform called “Jobs Act” made this contract cheaper from the fiscal point of view. It also abolished the employee’s right to be reinstated if a judge found that he had bee wrongfully dismissed. Instead, he or she now gets a cash payment.
