In Italy, we support open/indefinite and fixed term agreements. Regarding the fixed-term agreements:
- The original fixed-term contract cannot be longer than 12 months.
- If the original fixed-term contract is equal to 12 months, no extensions or renewals are permissible.
- If the original fixed-term contract is less than 12 months, we can only extend it (before the end date) up to 12 months (total length: original + extension). We cannot renew it after the end date if the total duration was 12 months.
