A project-based contract cannot be extended for maternity if the project has been completed (Court of Milan, Judgement of 28 April 2009)

The Court of Milan has established that the termination of a coordinated, ongoing project-based contract is valid when the project in question has been completed, and that any claim to extend the self-employment contract due to maternity, for a period beyond the project completion date is without grounds. It follows that extension of the termination date of such a contract on the grounds of maternity is possible only if the project is not yet completed, or if its completion with reference to a specific deadline beyond that planned originally would in any event be impossible.
