What is an EMPLOYER OF RECORD (EOR) in Italy and how it works

The term Employer of Record (EOR) refers to a service wherein a provider hires an employee for a third party, relieving the client of the legal and financial responsibilities associated with establishing a local entity. In Italy, only providers authorized by the Italian Ministry of Labour can offer this service, ensuring complete compliance.

Peoitaly is an Italian licensed agency who will employ a worker on your behalf. We will also ensure that social security payments, employee benefits and the entire payroll cycle are handled in compliance with a relevant Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs).

Here is how our Employer of Record services in Italy works:

  • Legal Employer Role

    Peoitaly becomes the legal employer of the workers, even though the employees work at the direction of another company (the employee is therefore leased to the client). This means Peoitaly is responsible for adhering to Italian labour laws, managing employment contracts, and ensuring compliance with local regulations.

  • Payroll and Benefits

    Peoitaly is responsible for payroll processing, including calculating and disbursing salaries, deducting taxes, and managing social security contributions. Additionally, Peoitaly will handle employee benefits and entitlements in accordance with the relevant CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) and, where possible, with the client’s instructions.

  • Tax Compliance

    Peoitaly takes care of tax withholding and filing on behalf of the employees. This includes income tax, social security contributions, and any other applicable taxes.

  • Legal and Regulatory Compliance

    Peoitaly ensures that all employment arrangements comply with Italian labour laws, regulations, and employment standards. This includes issues related to working hours, leave entitlements, termination procedures, and more.

  • Contractual Relationships

    The client company (the one utilizing Peoitaly service) maintains the day-to-day oversight and management of the employees, while Peoitaly handles the legal and administrative aspects of employment.

  • Flexibility and Scalability

    Using Peoitaly EOR solutions allows companies to quickly and easily scale their workforce in Italy without the burden of establishing a legal entity, navigating complex labour laws, and managing administrative tasks.

  • Risk Mitigation

    Peoitaly takes on some of the legal and financial risks associated with employment in Italy, helping the client company reduce its exposure to potential legal issues and liabilities.

It's important to note that the specifics of how an EOR arrangement operates can vary based on the EOR provider and the terms outlined in the service agreement. Companies considering this option should carefully check that the provider has a valid staff leasing license issued by the Italian Ministry of Labour. If that is not the case, the service provided is considered to be illegal with legal consequences for the unaware client.
