On 17 May 2022, the interministerial decree of the previous 29 March was published, implementing Art. 46 of Legislative Decree no. 198/2006 ( “Equal Opportunities Code”). It defines the procedures for drawing up the two-yearly Equal Opportunities report for public and private companies with more than 50 employees. These companies must draw up the report electronically, by filling in the form in Annex A of the decree online. A computer app is available on the portal of the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies to manage the report. The report deadline is 30 September 2022 for the 2020-2021 two-year period. The deadline for the following two-year periods will be 30 April of the year following the end of each two-year period. At the end of the IT procedure, if no errors or inconsistencies are detected, the application issues a receipt certifying that the report has been correctly drawn up. The employer must forward a copy of the report, together with the receipt, to the Unitary Trade Union Representatives (RSU). The computer application will be operational from 23 June 2022.
