Petition number: 0883/2021
Topics: Justice, Social Affairs, Fundamental Rights, Internal Market, Employment
Name: G. C.
The petitioner indicates that in Italy a very high percentage of lawyers work for a single legal chambers, but despite that they are classified as self-employed workers and therefore deprived of any legal protection in terms of the right to maternity leave, sick leave or holidays, while in reality they are employees. He therefore calls on the European Parliament to intervene to bring in a coordinated legal system for lawyers working for a single legal chambers in order to eliminate the discrimination against them as compared with lawyers in the rest of the EU.
