Work: Orlando, studying recovery rules soft exits over 50

Retrieve those experimental norms launched in the past years that they had designed for the over 50s the possibility of soft rides” from the labor market with which to guarantee the company a non-traumatic transfer of skills between young and old and avoid the risk of marginalization of older workers. De facto rules never took off which could be modified by giving space both to the aspirations of a less intense working life and to a mentoring system for young people entering the world of work. AND’ the Minister of Labor, Andrea Orlando, during his speech at the EY Italy Outlook Talk entitled “How will our ways of living and working change?” in fact, to outline one of the next steps to which the dicastery will be committed, on the sidelines of the biggest game, still to be played, on the Fornero reform and the modification of the retirement age.

In any case, the proposal on the minister’s table would have nothing to do with options such as Quota 100 or other, Orlando immediately clarifies, but rather with the
the will to create a mechanism that accompanies a worker to retire without renouncing his competence
and drawing it for it a more advisory role“that active, perhaps” associating after a certain age also a reduction in working hours “.

“Many 50-year-olds begin to think about when they will retire, also because at a certain point the job becomes less interesting and the possibility of growth is drastically reduced. One thing that negatively affects the labor market but also from the point of view social security and social security ensure that until the last day of work the person is fully integrated, motivated and with a possible path“, Orlando explains, recalling how in this sense” soft exit forms, provided for by law, have been experimented in recent years, but they have never worked: now we are monitoring the reason for this flop and there are various hypotheses “.

Soft “very little used” releases, repeats reiterating how “instead I believe that this is an area in which to return to work, perhaps associating a reduction in hours after a certain age. This could also help, in some sectors, that passage of skills that retirement does not allow since it provides on the contrary, a dry logic: today I work tomorrow I will stop. This type of mechanism, on the other hand, would allow, in addition to reducing the risk of marginalization in recent years, to transform that job into a more consultative form “.
