Italy: New obligations for the client of occasional self-employed workers

The conversion law of the law decree 146/2021 modified the art. 14 of Legislative Decree n. 81/2008 introducing a new obligation for the client to communicate the start of an occasional collaboration activity to the territorially competent labor inspectorate by means of registered email or text message.

Occasional collaboration is characterized by the exceptional and non-habitual work activity performed without subordination constraints in exchange for a fee.

Failure or delayed communication will result in the application, on the part of the client, of a pecuniary administrative sanction from 500.00 to 2,500.00 euros, in relation to each occasional self-employed worker involved.

The occasional self-employed workers without prior notification will be counted in the percentage of irregular workers which, if it reaches the percentage of 10%, will lead to the issue, by the labor inspector, of the suspension of work activity.
