No International Women's Day at Italian military court
In 2010 and 2011, women employed at the Military Tribunal of Rome were allowed to take off for half a day on March 8, which is International Women's Day. It has since been decided that this was illegal. Giuliano Valentini, who authorized the absences, has been retired and the personnel who took time off must either make it up through overtime or have their pay checked. He is being sued for abuse of position. Read all about it.
