  • Non-EU companies seconding workers to Italy to provide services, who were previously subject to certain notification requirements per an EU Directive, are no longer subject to the notification requirements, according to a new decree.

    The notification obligations no longer apply to the following groups of foreign workers:
    • Non-EU managers, specialists, and trainees seconded to Italy under Italian intracompany transferee laws;
    • Researchers; and
    • Self-employed workers
    The notification obligation still applies to the following groups of foreign workers:
    • EU and non-EU nationals seconded to an unaffiliated Italian company; and
    • EU and non-EU nationals seconded from an EU company to an Italian company (either affiliated or not).
    What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

    Employers who have already sent notifications which are no longer needed per the decree may need to cancel the notification. Affected employers should contact their immigration professional for further instructions.
