The author investigates the recent reform focusing on the section
devoted to "economically dependent" self-employment work, highlighting
the contrast line adopted by the legislator to the use of the different
forms of self-employment work (collaborazioni a progetto e a partita Iva).
But if the changes to the self-employment work appear to be consistent
with the system and the purposes of the legislative measures, at the same
time the feeling is that a sort of "political trade-off" eventually came off
between those who advocate greater flexibility in firing and those who
require a reduction of flexibility in hiring. Hence, the author wonders
about the changes to the s.c. "self-employment project contract" (lavoro
a progetto), with reference to the basic elements of the type both in terms
of sanctions and contractual discipline.
