the inclusion check arrives, a new cut for the tax wedge -


With 96 s, 55 no and 10 abstentions, the Senate yesterday approved the trust placed by the government in the Labor decree, that measure fired on May 1st by the Council of Ministers which introduces the ADI, the inclusion checkin place of the basic income (from 1 January 2024, and removes restrictions on fixed-term contracts and apprenticeship contracts (but only for some categories of workers). And cuts the tax wedge for the lowest incomes by up to 7%. (up to 25,000 euros), but only from July to December 2023. A provision which, however, must be converted into law on July 3, otherwise it will expire. This is why the passage to the Chamber risks being a formality with the Chamber which will have to give the go-ahead without any modifications.

But in the meantime the majority is rejoicing for the approval of what the speaker Paola Mancini (Brothers of Italy) defines the first step to create a system of modern rules that protect workers and guarantee employers and therefore aimed at reducing the gap between supply and demand for work. Do not agree with the opposition who speaks instead of job insecurity decree. The Democratic Party, with the president of the group in the Senate Francesco Boccia, attacks the bad provision that increases the precariousness for workers and punishes the poor: the principle in which the majority believes that poverty is a fault and that those who are poor are poor because they do not want to work, the reality is quite different.

In extremis, an amendment by the rapporteur was approved which increase publishing resources for the early retirement of journalists professionals: 1.2 million euros in 2023; 4 million from 2024 to 2027; 2.8 million in 2028. And Fieg, the Italian federation of newspaper publishers, expresses its satisfaction and hopes that the decree will be converted into law which will allow companies in the sector to encourage generational turnover with the inclusion of new resources to make the best use of opportunities offered by technological innovation.

Contracts and taxes here’s what changes
Among the most important innovations introduced with the Labor decree just approved by the Senate are new rules for futures contracts and the increase in the cut of the tax wedge which will bring more money to the paycheck for the lowest incomes, but only from July to December 2023. Discounts are envisaged for hiring young people. News also for recipients of the inclusion allowance (Adi), the former income, who will be able to refuse a fixed-term job offer but only if they are parents of children under 14. Smart working has been extended to the end of the year but only for some categories of workers and in the PA limited to 30 September only for the frail.

Hiring and renewals, a lighter tax wedge
Sar it is easier to renew fixed-term contracts: among the provisions of the Labor decree approved yesterday by the Senate there is also the simplification of contract renewals which can be carried out without the reasons, as is already foreseen for extensions, but only for a maximum of 12 months. Skip the 20% ceiling for apprenticeship contracts but only for mobile, unemployed or disadvantaged workers. Contribution relief is provided for those who hire under 30 or workers up to 35 years of age in the South. The cut in the tax wedge for incomes up to 35 thousand euros is growing, which translates into an extra 100 euros per month in paychecks for lower incomes, but only in the period July-December 2023.

Smart working and tax-free bonus of three thousand euros
The decree extends to 31 December 2023, from 30 June, the possibility of smart working for employees of private companies, but only if fragile workers or parents of children under 14 years of age. In the Public Administration, the extension arrived in extremis but only for fragile workers, as advocated by the Minister of Public Administration Paolo Zangrillo, and only until 30 September 2023. the increase to 3,000 euros of the tax-free threshold for fringe benefits has been confirmed, but only for employees with dependent children and the exemption also concerns the contribution as well as the tax part. The family booklet can also be purchased in tobacconists as well as at the post office.

Resources for inclusion (goodbye to the RdC)
With the Work decree, news also arrives for the inclusion allowance, the support measure which from 1 January 2024 replaces the basic income, but with much stricter limits, i.e. only for families with dependent minors or disabled or elderly people above the 60 years of age. Among the changes approved in the decree there is a revision of the equivalence scale and the expansion of the audience also to disadvantaged subjects included in treatment and assistance programmes. Persons who can be employed with children under the age of 14 may refuse fixed-term employment if they are more than 80 kilometers away from their residence. Customized courses and training courses are also planned.

Fund for accident victims and tourism workers
Approved at the last moment also a amendment which increases the support fund for the families of victims of fatal accidents at work by 5 million euro. A choice made to recover the cut in checks scheduled for 2023 by ministerial decree 75 of last May 18th. Green light also to the special supplementary treatment for workers in the tourism sector who from 1 June 2023 to 21 September 2023 will receive a 15% increase for overtime work on holidays and night work. The measure intended only for employees who in 2022 did not exceed 40 thousand euros in income.
