While in Italy the government is divided over whether the stepchild adoption law should be extended to gay couples, Gucci has proposed the idea of extending holiday entitlement for honeymoon to all its employees whatever their sexual orientation.

The Florentine company is currently negotiating the renovation of the integrative contractual agreement with trade unions.

Gucci’s decision to extend benefits to gay couples is in line with the approach of the company which in 2013 introduced the “Welfare for you” program, aimed at offering its employees substantial benefits in different areas, from children’s education to health and fiscal support.
