Immigrant workers in Italy who have lost their jobs will be entitled to Job Search Permits valid for one year.

The Senate’s Labour Commission has approved Article 58 of the Labour Market Reform Bill which allows immigrants who have become jobless to be issued Job Search Permits valid for one year.

Previously those who lost their jobs were only entitled to Job Search Permits valid for six months.

A part from the Northern League Party, all the other parties including the People of Liberty party (PDL) voted in favour of the measure.
