CIGS (Extraordinary wage subsidy): Developments and Clarifications

15 November 2018

By way of article 44 of Decree Law no. 109/2018, the cassa integrazione straordinaria for closure of business has been reintroduced for 2018, 2019 and 2020, in derogation of the provisions of the so-called Jobs Act which excluded this subsidy commencing from the end of 2018. Circular no. 15,dated 4 October 2018 issued by the Ministry of Labour has provided the relevant clarifications. The CIGS for cessation of business can now be awarded for up to a maximum of 12 months in favour of companies, including those subjects to insolvency procedures, who are terminating their production business or have already terminated that business. In the latter case collective procedures for the dismissal of all employees must not have been concluded.
