As for fringe benefits, employers often assist with housing, transport, canteens and children's nurseries. National health care is free for everyone, so companies are not required to offer employees health insurance plans.
The rules regarding employee benefits are subject to change. For instance, retirement plans are currently being discussed by the Italian government and already existing benefits may be reduced as the Government endeavours to make changes across the welfare sector. For up to date information regarding the changing laws, refer to this Italian website which offers: Employee Benefits Consulting in Italy. Alternatively, you may refer to the International Accounting Standards Board website, an organization which classifies the IAS19, concerned mainly with accounting for employee benefits.
Please refer to our article on Pensions for further information on this monumental Italian topic.
