Le più grandi sciagure dell’umanità sono state originate da chi ha voluto semplificare la vita pianificando il mondo.

Translation of the post of February 3

Still on Article 18...
The reform of the labor market have already written on the pages of this blog. We return now readily seen in the argument that the government seems willing, within the next three / four weeks to lay out a reform of this market. The argument then is to narrow topical and involves almost all of us. The work is in fact the typical activity of man, animals do not work, ie do not create their own activities with tangible or intangible, but they respond with their own actions to instinct. But we remain in Article 18.

This morning, the first pages, the main Italian financial daily has dedicated a large well-depth space. From reading emerges first and foremost a fact: the matter of dismissal of the employee is treated differently in different European countries. All laws provide some cause for dismissal combined with subjective dismissal for economic reasons related to business life. The second case does not create "problems" because unfortunately, when a company goes really bad, there are reasons to take the company stopped and the problem does not exist and the worker enough.


The real Italian problem, which emerges by reading the articles published by Il Sole 24 Ore, is when an Italian company dismisses an employee and is set in a legal dispute. Here begins the Italian anomalies, which are of two types: uncertain times, and also long before arriving at the resolution of the dispute and uncertainty in monetary cost that will support the company if the dismissal is upheld. Basically almost all the laws of other countries provide for a maximum reimbursement, while in Italy the quantum is decided by the judge. If one adds the fact that different courts follow different case law on the subject under consideration, the picture that emerges is in fact at least nebulous and could deter investment by large companies in Italy. I say might because if you analyze the declared motivations that drive top managers of large corporations to decide which countries to invest in the world, the ease of dismissal is hardly ever mentioned among the reasons decisive. But this topic is dealt with in another post.

At this point I still have a question and a consideration. The question is: why this Government has decided to pose as central to the reform of labor market change / repeal of Article 18? We have seen that the causes of the Italian resident in a long time for justice and the uncertainty of monetary compensation, but these cases are not directly dependent on the existence of Article 18, but the organization of justice in Italy and by legislation in deficient with respect to the regulation of compensation. Why not start from here?

The account is so simple it may seem trivial: only economic growth can increase jobs and create market opportunities and mobility for all workers, both positive mobility sought in words and hyped by this government. Otherwise, that is, contraction of the economy, companies will be forced to close and then to dismiss, with a just or unjust cause, no matter.For the moment I stop: many would still be things to say on the subject. In the next post.
