High court says okay to close public jobs to non-Europeans

Fair to close State competitions to outside workers

(ANSA) - Rome, September 2 - Competition for public employment in Italy can be fairly limited to citizens of Italy and the European Union as well as refugees, Italy's high Cassation Court ruled on Tuesday.
    It rejected an appeal by an Albanian woman who wanted to be included in a 2011 competition for a position reserved for disabled workers in the economy ministry. The court said that employment law makes it clear that State jobs can still be controlled to the extent that only EU citizens are eligible, particularly in so sensitive a department as the economy ministry.
