Agricultural unemployment: how to apply for it, what is due, all the news


Anyone who has worked with a regular contract on a farm and has suffered a dismissal has the right to apply for the agricultural unemployment to the National Institute of Social Security (INPS).

There agricultural unemployment it follows rules which, in some respects, are different from the perceived unemployment of those who have lost their jobs in other sectors.

The first requirement that gives access to agricultural unemployment is theregistration in the lists of names of agricultural workers.

In addition, in order to access the allowance, it is necessary to have worked at a farm with a fixed-term, permanent or apprenticeship contract, or to have performed other forms of work.

Let's see in detail how it works.

Are you entitled to receive agricultural unemployment?

The answer is yes if you fall into one of these cases:

  • fixed-term agricultural workers;
  • small settlers (subjects who enter into a contract for the concession of less than 120 days in the agricultural sector)
  • family partners (families who enter into a work contract on agricultural land for a specific period);
  • small direct farmers who have reached 51 working days - or who supplement the 51 days foreseen in the lists of names with voluntary contributions;
  • permanent agricultural workers, even if they only work for part of the year.

Others basic requirements, in order to obtain agricultural unemployment, are:

  • having joined the insurance against involuntary unemployment for at least two years (corresponds to the registration in the agricultural lists for at least two years);
  • having paid at least 102 days of contributions divided between the year in which the allowance is requested and the previous year.

Let's now see what the subjects excluded from agricultural unemployment benefit.

These include:

  • workers enrolled in the Separate Management or in an Autonomous Management for the whole year or for most of the year;
  • workers who already receive the direct pension from the previous year;
  • workers with a residence permit who carry out seasonal work;
  • workers who voluntarily resign (except those who resign for just cause or mothers who resign during the period of maternity leave).

Once the necessary requirements have been ascertained, the worker who no longer lends his business to the company can apply for agricultural unemployment directly to INPS.

The question has to be submitted electronically through the INPS website and requires online compilation. To access the INPS portal it is necessary to obtain the access PIN, which will be, for the first access, separated into two parts and sent by e-mail and by ordinary mail.

Alternatively, the worker can contact a patronage or to the INPS Call Center to submit the online application.

Pay attention to the timing: the unemployment application must necessarily be submitted by March 31st in the year following that of dismissal.

Once these terms have elapsed, the right to agricultural unemployment benefit is automatically lost.

How much is the agricultural unemployment benefit?

To determine the right figure, you must, first of all, correctly define the working days according to this formula: maximum 365 days worked per year to which the days of agricultural and non-agricultural employees are deducted; self-employed days; days of illness and injury; definitive expatriation and other non-indemnifiable days.

Once the correct number of days eligible for compensation has been obtained, lINPS awards an indemnity equal to 40% of the reference salary. The so-called is also deducted from this amount solidarity contribution, equal to 9%, for a maximum of 150 days a year.

The terms of payment to receive the indemnity there are two: by crediting the current account or prepaid card with IBAN or by bank transfer at the reference post office (look at the postal code) of the recipient.

  • fixed-term and permanent agricultural workers
  • non-EU workers with a residence permit for seasonal work, for which the specific legislation remains confirmed.

Naspi 2020: how to ask for unemployment status

One of the basic requirements to access Naspi is to obtain unemployment status.

On this point it is necessary to remember that the decree n. 4/2019 amended the rules underlying obtaining unemployment status and the ANPAL, with circular no. 1/2019 illustrated all the news for workers.

The state of unemployment concerns the subjects who issue the DID (Declaration of Immediate Availability) and that they satisfy one of the following requirements:

  • not to carry out work either of a subordinate or self-employed type
  • be workers whose income from employment or self-employment corresponds to a gross tax equal to or less than the deductions to which you are entitled under Article 13 of the consolidated income tax law.

The state of unemployment does not conflict with employment relationships. By respecting some rules it is therefore possible to work without losing the state of unemployment and, therefore, the right to Naspi.

L'decisive element and the income received, which changes according to the type of activity carried out, as established by law:

  • for the employee the threshold is 8,145 euros per year: regardless of the expected duration of the employment relationship, the taxable annual salary for IRPEF purposes (therefore net of the contributions to be paid by the worker) of reference is considered
  • for the autonomous one the limit, on the other hand, stops at 4,800 per year.

To apply for unemployment status, the unemployed person must present himself in person at the Employment Center, with the following documents:

  • valid identity card or identification document
  • copy of the employment contract
  • a residence permit and a residential address will also be required for foreign unemployed persons.

Amount, calculation and duration of the Naspi 2020

For calculate the amount of the Naspi 2020 it will be necessary to divide the total taxable wages for social security purposes of the last four years by the number of weeks of contributions. The quotient is finally multiplied by the number 4.33.

In the event that the monthly salary resulting from the operation is equal to or less than the amount of 1,221.44 euros per month, the amount of Naspi will be determined in an amount equal to 75% of the salary itself.

If, on the other hand, the amount of the monthly salary is higher than the 75% described above, an amount equal to 25% of the difference between the monthly salary and the aforementioned amount will be added.

Starting last year, INPS has made new services available for calculating Naspi.

Inside theINPS Mobile app it contains a new feature, called "NASpI Question Outcomes" which allows the user, with SPID or PIN, to get information on the status of their application via smartphone or tablet devices.

  • the contribution periods already used for the benefits already used, deducted in the calculation of the duration of the new application.

Please note that Naspi is paid monthly, for a number of weeks equal to half of the contribution weeks present in the last four years.

NASPI Calculus

How is unemployment benefit calculated? The NASpI is calculated on the basis of the average monthly salary taxable for social security purposes for the last 4 years, divided by the total weeks of contributions and multiplied by the numerical coefficient 4.33.

If the amount resulting from this calculation is less than 1,227.55 Euros, which is the reference amount for 2020, the worker is entitled to a NASpI allowance equal to 75% of the average monthly salary. If, on the other hand, it is higher, the benefit is calculated by adding 25% of the difference between the monthly salary and € 1,227.55 to 75%. The economic contribution received by NASpI beneficiaries cannot in any case exceed € 1,335.40 per month and is reduced by 3% per month starting from the fourth month of disbursement onwards.

So, in summary, for the NASpI calculation you can refer to the following formulas:

  • (average monthly salary of the last 4 years / weeks of contributions) x 4.33 = or 1,227.55 Euros - NASpI = 75% + 25% (average monthly salary - 1,227.55).

NASPI 2020 Duration of the service

How often is the financial aid paid and for how long? The NASpI is paid monthly, for a number of weeks equal to half the weeks of contributions of the last 4 years, up to a maximum of 24 months, or 2 years. Contribution periods that have already given rise to the disbursement of unemployment benefits are not counted, even in cases where these benefits have been used in a single advance in advance.

Operationally:
- for the purposes of calculating the duration of the benefit, only the contribution periods present in the four-year period of observation are taken into consideration
- for the purposes of non-calculation of the contribution periods that have already given rise to the disbursement of unemployment benefit, the previous contribution periods of which they formed the basis of calculation are excluded
- the contribution periods relating to the employment relationship subsequent to the last unemployment benefit are always useful for determining the duration of a new NASpI since they have not already given rise to the disbursement of unemployment benefits.

NASPI Effective date

From when can you receive the allowance? The NASpI is due to the worker starting from the eighth day following the date of termination of the last employment relationship, if the application was submitted within the eighth day, or from the first day following the date of submission of the application if sent after the 'eighth day and within the maximum deadline set by current legislation.

However, particular criteria apply in the event of maternity, illness, accident at work / occupational disease or lack of notice, dismissal for just cause, litigation. It is also necessary to take into account the suspensive effects on the performance of illness and maternity events that may arise after NASpI benefits already in progress. For all the details, please refer to the provisions of the relevant legislation.

Incentive for self-employment

The worker entitled to NASpI can request the advance payment in a single solution of the total amount of the treatment that is due to him and that has not yet been paid, as an incentive to start an autonomous or business activity individual or for the subscription of a share of the share capital of a cooperative in which the mutual relationship has as its object the provision of work by the member. The incentive is not recognized in the event of the establishment of a coordinated and ongoing collaboration relationship, including on a project basis.

How to apply for the incentive for self-employment? The worker concerned must submit to INPS, under penalty of forfeiture, an online advance request within 90 days from the start date of the activity. Alternatively, if the activity began during the employment relationship whose termination gave rise to the NASpI benefit, within 90 days from the date of submission of the NASpI unemployment benefit application. The advance payment in a single solution by NASpI does not give the right to the notional contribution or to the allowance for the family unit.

NASPI Early and reoccupation

With the Message n. 4658 of 13-12-2019, INPS provided clarifications regarding the NASpI unemployment benefit in advance and re-employment with a collaboration contract. Given that paragraph 4 of Article 8 of Legislative Decree 4 March 2015, no. 22 provides that the worker who establishes an employment relationship before the expiry of the period for which the advance payment of NASpI is recognized is required to return the advance obtained in full, except in the case in which the employment relationship is established with the cooperative of which the worker has subscribed a share of the share capital, and that the advanced NASpI must be returned only in the event that the beneficiary re-occupies himself with a subordinate employment contract during the theoretical period of the unemployment benefit, but is not having governed the hypothesis of re-employment with a parasubordinate employment relationship by the beneficiary of the NASpI indemnity in advance in the theoretical period due to the same, the Institute specifies the following:

- if the subject who benefits from the early NASpI re-occupies himself with a coordinated and continuous collaboration contract in the theoretical period of due to the early unemployment benefit, and the collaboration relationship ends during this period, he can apply for the DIS unemployment benefit -COLL, i.e. the service in support of coordinated and continuous collaborators, including project-based, research fellows and PhD students with scholarships, but only for the monthly payments that do not overlap the theoretical period of the NASpI allowance. This is to avoid the overlap of the two unemployment benefits and that the beneficiary can receive both benefits for the same period.
- if the collaboration relationship ceases after the end of the theoretical period attributable to NASpI, the DIS-COLL can be recognized for the entire period of responsibility, since in this case there is no overlap with NASpI.

NASPI Tax regime

What tax regime do I return to if I receive NASpI? The NASpI unemployment benefit constitutes income in the same category as that lost or replaced, therefore the INPS, as a withholding agent, on the amounts paid out by way of NASpI:
- apply the personal income tax withholdings
- recognizes, if requested, any tax deductions for income and family expenses
- make the year-end tax adjustment
- issues the Single Certification.

NASPI Ancillary services

For the periods of use of the NASpI, notional contributions are automatically recognized within a salary limit equal to 1.4 times the maximum monthly amount of the NASpI for the current year. The notional contribution period for NASpI is calculated for the seniority of contributions for pension purposes. The right to the allowance for the family unit for the allowance in question remains confirmed.

NASPI Appeal

Is it possible to appeal? How to do it? The appeal against the measures adopted in relation to NASpI must be presented to the Provincial Committee of the structure that issued the provision within 90 days of receipt of the administrative provision:

EXPIRY EXPIRATION OF NASPI APPLICATION FOR CORONAVIRUS

Inps, through message no. 1286 of 20-03-2020, announced the extension of the deadline for submitting applications for NASpI 2020 and for early NASpI. The deadline for requesting the NASpI Inps indemnity for terminated employment relationships between January 1, 2020 and the December 31, 2020 has been extended by further 60 days, in addition to the 68 normally provided, while the unemployment benefit in anticipated form was extended by 60 days in addition to the 30 ordinary.

So the NASpI 2020 question must be submitted within 128 days from the date of involuntary termination of the employment relationship, while the incentive for self-employment (NASpI anticipated) within 90 days.

It is the provisions of decree-law no. 18 of 17 March 2020 - so-called 'cure Italy' decree - which introduced various measures to support workers, families and businesses to cope with the epidemiological emergency caused by the spread of the COVID-19 infection. Based on the extension, the indemnity will run from the 68th day following the date of termination of the last employment relationship for ordinary (not anticipated) NASpI applications submitted after 68 days.

NASPI 2021 PAYMENT

How is NASpI paid? The indemnity New Social Insurance for Employment is accredited by the INPS su bank account or postal or on postal book. Alternatively it can be provided through transfer at a post office in the municipality of residence or domicile of the applicant.

NASPI CALCULATION

How is unemployment benefit calculated? NASpI is calculated on the basis of the taxable average monthly salary for the social security purposes of the latter 4 years, uniform for the total of weeks of contribution is multiplied for the numerical coefficient 4.33.

If the amount resulting from this calculation is less than 1,227.55 Euros, which is the reference amount for 2021, the worker is entitled to a NASpI allowance equal to 75% of the average monthly salary. If, on the other hand, it is higher, the benefit is calculated by adding 25% of the difference between the monthly salary and € 1,227.55 to 75%. The economic contribution received by NASpI beneficiaries cannot in any case exceed € 1,335.40 per month and is reduced by 3% per month starting from the fourth month of disbursement onwards.

FORMULAS FOR CALCULATING NASPI

So, in summary, for the NASpI calculation we can refer to following formulas:

  • (average monthly salary of the last 4 years / weeks of contributions) x 4.33 = or 1,227.55 Euros - NASpI = 75% + 25% (average monthly salary - 1,227.55).

NASPI TABLE 2021 CALCULATION

Below is a detailed diagram on the methods of calculation and measurement of NASpI (amounts referring to 2020, which are equal to the amounts 2021):

NASPI 2021 DURATION OF THE BENEFIT

How often is the financial aid paid and for how long? NASpI is paid monthly, for a number of weeks equal to half of the weeks of contribution of last 4 years, up to a maximum of 24 months, that is 2 years.

Contribution periods that have already given rise to the disbursement of unemployment benefits are not counted, even in cases where these benefits have been used in a single advance in advance.

Operationally:
- for the purpose of calculating the duration of the benefit, only the contribution periods present in the four-year period of observation are taken into consideration
- for the purposes of non-calculation of the contribution periods that have already given rise to the disbursement of unemployment benefit, the previous contribution periods of which they formed the basis of calculation are excluded
- the contribution periods relating to the employment relationship subsequent to the last unemployment benefit are always useful for determining the duration of a new NASpI since they have not already given rise to the disbursement of unemployment benefits.

NASPI EFFECTIVENESS

From when can you receive the allowance? NASpI is up to the employee to leave from the eighth following day on the date of termination of the last employment relationship, if the application was submitted within the eighth day, or from first day after to date of presentation of the application if sent after the eighth day and within the maximum deadline set by current legislation.

However, particular criteria apply in the event of maternity, illness, accident at work / occupational disease or lack of notice, dismissal for just cause, litigation. It is also necessary to keep in mind the suspensive effects on the performance of illness and maternity events that may arise after NASpI benefits already in progress. For all the details, please refer to the provisions of the relevant legislation.

INCENTIVE TO SELF-ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The worker entitled to NASpI can request the early settlement in a single solution of the total amount of treatment that is due to him and that has not yet been paid, as an incentive tostart of an'self-employed activity or of an individual enterprise or for the subscription of a share of the share capital of a cooperative in which the mutualistic relationship has as its object the performance of work by the member. The incentive is not recognized in the event of the establishment of a coordinated and continuous collaboration relationship, including on a project basis.

How to apply for the incentive for self-employment? The worker concerned must submit to INPS, under penalty of forfeiture, an application for advance electronically within 90 days from the start date of the activity. Alternatively, if the activity began during the employment relationship whose termination gave rise to the NASpI service, within 90 days from the date of submission of the NASpI unemployment benefit application. The advance payment in a single solution by NASpI does not give the right to the notional contribution or to the allowance for the family unit.

EARLY NASPI AND RE-EMPLOYMENT

With message no. 4658 of 13-12-2019, INPS provided clarifications regarding the NASpI unemployment benefit in advance and the reoccupation with collaboration agreement. Paragraph 4 of Article 8 of Legislative Decree 4 March 2015, n. 22 provides that the worker who establishes an employment relationship before the expiry of the period for which the advance payment of NASpI is recognized is required to return the advance obtained in full. An exception is the case in which the subordinate employment relationship is established with the cooperative in which the worker has subscribed a share of the share capital.

The advance NASpI must be returned only in the event that the beneficiary reoccupies with a subordinate employment contract during the theoretical period of the unemployment benefit. Therefore, the hypothesis of re-employment with a parasubordinate employment relationship by the beneficiary of the NASpI indemnity in advance in the theoretical period due to the same is not regulated. Therefore, INPS specified that:

  1. if the person who benefits from the early NASpI re-occupies himself with contract of coordinated collaboration is continuous in the theoretical period to which the unemployment benefit is due in advance, and the collaboration relationship ceases during this period, you can apply for the DIS-COLL unemployment benefit, but only for the monthly payments that do not overlap the theoretical period of the NASpI allowance. This in order to to avoid there overlap of the two performance unemployment and that the beneficiary can receive both benefits for the same period
  2. if the collaboration relationship it ceases after the end of the theoretical period pertaining to NASpI, the DIS-COLL can be recognizedfor the whole period due, since in this case there is no overlap with the NASpI.

NASPI SUSPENSION

The disbursement of the NASpI is conditional on the stay of the state of unemployment, as well as to the regular participation at initiatives of job activation and professional retraining courses proposed by the competent services.

Performance comes suspended in the following cases:

  • reoccupation of the beneficiary, with a subordinate employment contract lasting no more than 6 months and provided that the annual income is less than 8,000 euros. The suspension lasts for the duration of the employment relationship
  • new employment abroad, in EU countries or with which Italy has stipulated bilateral agreements on unemployment insurance or in non-EU countries, in accordance with the provisions of current legislation for the suspension of NASpI in case of work at abroad.

SANCTIONS

Failure to comply with the obligations for unemployment benefit recipients provided for by current legislation may result in various sanctions, from curtailment of a fraction or an entire month's payment, to forfeiture the benefit and the state of unemployment.

In particular, the NASpI lapses in the following cases:

  • loss of unemployment status
  • commencement of an employment activity, lasting more than 6 months or indefinitely, without communicating the presumed income derived from it to INPS, within one month of its beginning
  • not having communicated, within 1 month of the NASpI application, the income deriving from another or other part-time employment relationships when at least one of several part-time employment relationships that gave the right to NASpI ceases
  • I start an autonomous or para-subordinate work activity without communicating the presumed income, within one month of starting it
  • achievement of pension requirements
  • having acquired the right to the ordinary disability allowance and not having opted for NASpI
  • not having participated, without justified reason, in the orientation initiatives prepared by the Employment Centers, in the cases provided for by art. 21, paragraph 7, of the legislative decree 14 September 2015, n. 150.

Question

REQUIREMENTS

NASpI is recognized for subordinate workers who jointly submit the requirements indicated below.

State of unemployment
They consider themselves unemployed unemployed persons who have involuntarily lost their employment and who declare in electronic form to the national labor policy portal their immediate availability to carry out work activities and to participate in active labor policy measures agreed with the center for 'use. The presentation of the NASpI application is equivalent to issuing the aforementioned declaration of immediate availability (DID). In the 15 days following the submission of the application, the applicant must go to the employment center for the stipulation of the personalized service agreement. Failing this, the insured is summoned by the employment center.

The state of unemployment must be involuntary, therefore workers whose employment relationship has ended following resignation or consensual termination are excluded. However, access to the NASpI, if the other requirements are met, is also allowed in the following cases:

  • resignation for just cause, if the resignation is not attributable to the free choice of the worker but is induced by the behavior of others that imply the condition of impracticability of the employment relationship (INPS circular 20 October 2003, n.163)
  • resignations occurred during the protected period of maternity, that is, starting from 300 days before the presumed date of birth and until the child's first year of life
  • consensual termination of the employment relationship, provided it has intervened as part of the conciliation procedure at the territorial labor directorate according to the procedures referred to in article 7, law no. 604 as replaced by article 1, paragraph 40, law 92/2012
  • consensual termination following the employee's refusal to relocate at another location of the same company more than 50 kilometers from the employee's residence and / or on average reachable by public transport in 80 minutes or more
  • dismissal with acceptance of the conciliation offer referred to in article 6, legislative decree 22/2015
  • disciplinary dismissal.

Contribution requirement

At least 13 weeks of unemployment insurance contributions are required in the four years preceding the start of the unemployment period. By useful contribution we also mean that due, but not paid, and all paid weeks are valid, provided that a salary of no less than the weekly minimums is paid or due for each week (law 11 November 1983, n.638 and law 7 December 1989 , no. 389). The provision relating to reference salaries does not apply to workers assigned to domestic and family services, agricultural workers and apprentices, for whom the rules in force continue to remain.

For the completion of the contribution requirement, the following are considered useful:

  • the social security contributions inclusive of a quota against unemployment paid during the subordinate employment relationship
  • the figurative contributions accredited for compulsory maternity leave, if at the beginning of the abstention it is already paid or due contribution and for the periods of parental leave, if indemnified and intervened in constant employment relationship
  • the periods of work abroad in EU or affiliated countries where the possibility of aggregation is envisaged
  • the periods of absence from work for illness of children up to eight years of age, for a maximum of five working days in the calendar year.

If the worker has periods of work in the agricultural sector and others in non-agricultural sectors, the periods can be cumulated to obtain the NASpI unemployment benefit, provided that the non-agricultural contribution is prevalent in the four-year period of observation. If in the four-year period there is a prevalence of agricultural contributions, it is possible to proceed - to determine the prevalence - to observe only the last 12 months prior to the termination of the employment relationship. If in the latter period there is a prevalence of non-agricultural contributions, the application for NASpI, in the presence of all the other requirements, is acceptable. On the other hand, the following periods covered by notional contributions are not considered useful as they are not covered by actual contributions:

  • illness and accident at work, if there is no integration of the remuneration by the employer, in compliance with the minimum salary
  • extraordinary and ordinary layoffs with suspension of the activity at zero hours
  • solidarity contracts, dating back over time and used in practice at zero hours
  • absence for permits and leave used by the worker who is cohabiting spouse, parent, cohabiting child, brother or sister cohabiting with a disabled person in a serious situation, relative or similar within the third degree cohabitant of the disabled person in a serious situation in the event that the cohabiting spouse, both parents, cohabiting children and cohabiting brothers or sisters are missing, deceased or suffering from disabling diseases
  • unpaid leave for elective public functions or union positions, pursuant to article 31 of law no. 300.

Periods of work abroad in countries with which Italy has not entered into bilateral agreements on unemployment insurance are not considered useful.

For the determination of the four-year period of verification of the contribution requirement, the aforementioned non-useful periods must be neutralized with consequent extension of the four-year reference period.

As for the workers with temporary employment contracts, with intermittent employment contracts and workers included in professional retraining procedures (Legislative Decree no.81 of 15 June 2015) - whose work activities are characterized by periods of work and non-work with an unpredictable nature, not attributable to the will of the workers - periods of non-work are not neutralized for the purposes of research of the contribution requirement (INPS circular of 27 November 2015, no.194).

Work requirement

At least 30 days of actual work are required in the 12 months preceding the start of the unemployment period. The days of actual work are those of actual presence at work, regardless of their hourly duration.

For domestic and family service workers, for which the number of days actually worked is not known, the presence at work for at least 30 days in the last 12 months is determined with the same system used for the crediting of contributions and for the payment of domestic workers' benefits: presence of five weeks of contributions, conventionally considered to be six days each, is equivalent to 30 days of work.

Taking into account that the crediting of the weeks refers to the calendar quarter and that 24 hours are required to cover a week, the weeks credited in the quarter they are calculated by adding all the hours worked in the quarter and dividing them by 24: for example, 80 hours worked in the quarter / 24 = 3.33 weeks of contributions, rounded up to four.

The requirement is met when, in the 12 months preceding the start of the unemployment period, the number of weeks resulting from the sum of the weekly contributions recognized for each quarter and paid by the employer or employers - if the employee was be more relationships - is equal to at least five.

For other categories of workers, for which it is not possible to trace the number of days worked (home workers and workers with contribution data deriving from foreign forms), the requirement is satisfied in the presence of five weeks of useful contribution in the 12 months preceding the termination event.

In the case of agricultural workers, when the number of days worked is not shown in the electronic archives or if these are not yet updated, the employee's pay slips will be used to check the 30 days of actual work in the last 12 months.
