[en] Since the creation of the Belgian social law in the 19th century, the labor market has been through quite a lot of changes, be it from a legal perspective, in term of social security or from a work organization point of view. Besides, for the past few years, the workers’ mentality has been shifting. Indeed, today’s workers aspire to higher levels of autonomy, they seek more respect for the work they deliver and wish to manage themselves their work schedule.
The binary split of status between the self-employed workers and employees has nevertheless remained unchanged since the 19th century. The split between these two work statuses for reasons such as large technological progresses (IT, homeworking, robotics, etc.) and economical imperatives (work flexibility, competition) is not as straightforward as before anymore, and could even represent a threat to innovation.
Through the model they developed, Partena Professional wishes to solve this structural change observed on the labor market.
This thesis will elaborate on the status of the “self-governing” workers as well as the grey area laying in between the status of the self-employed workers and the employees. Simultaneously, this thesis will shed light on what has been put in place as of today by other foreign countries regarding their legal framework. For example, through “TRADE”, a Spanish self-employed worker becomes economically dependent if more than 75% of his revenues are generated from one single stream. In Italy, the status of “Pare-Subordonis” is given to small self-employed workers who then benefit from a superior social security. In France, part-time self-employed workers are granted favorable social security conditions in order to help them become self-employed on a full-time basis.
The insights collected from specialists in various fields (member of the Belgian government, trade unions or from the academic world) about the model developed by Partena Professional do not only give a good overview of Partena’s model, but have created room for discussion on legal topics such as working hours, the employee’s autonomy or the self-employed worker’s social security.
