Decreto Dignità: the Italian labour reform

On 17th June 2019 a seminar about the recent labour reform (so called “Decreto Dignità”) took place in the headquarters of CNA, the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises, in Reggio Emilia.

The associate Sabrina Grivet Fetà intervened as main and keynote speaker, holding a presentation about the innovations carried out by the reform in the matter of temporary agency work, fixed-term contract and dismissals, also taking into consideration the fundamental sentence of the Italian Constitutional Court of November 2018.

The intervention illustrated the innovations introduced by the reform with respect to the previous discipline, trying to systematically reconstruct the new regulatory framework and to provide an interpretative orientation of the new rules.


Conference "Le liquidazioni virtuose" - Mantua 5 and 6 October 2018

The lecture focused on the possible actions of the bankruptcy receiver on the debtor’s share capital. From a static perspective, such actions may be identified in those aimed at recovering the unavailable assets corresponding to the share capital of the bankrupt company.

From a dynamic point of view, also in light of the scenario set up by the draft of the new Italian Bankruptcy Law, the mentioned actions consist in (extraordinary) operations, directly or indirectly involving the bankrupt company’s share capital (or its subsidiaries), reorganizing - in a broad sense - the company’s capital and/or financial structure.

In this last respect, the lecturer examined the controversial issue of the bankruptcy’s impact on the powers of the corporate bodies and of the bankruptcy receiver during the insolvency proceeding or in the perspective of a composition with creditors (“concordato fallimentare”)
