Creating safety nets for agency workers in Covid-19 crisis

Italy was one of the European countries that was the hardest hit by the Covid-19 crisis. Assolavoro, the national federation for private employment services agencies, together with trade unions, implemented a series of measures and tools aimed at ensuring continuity of income and contributions to agency workers and, at the same time, extended the benefits payable to workers. An initiative that paid off with a WEC Award in 2021!
