5. Conclusion

The differences in legal status between individuals having the employee status and the independent contractor status under the Romanian legislation caused by the under-reg-ulation of civil contracts, under which individual contractors perform their independent activities, can still lead to situations in which beneficiaries will use different types of contracts that suit their purposes without proper protection for the individuals providing the independent activities.

Such situations are a source of inequity that the law does not yet sanction. In order to prevent such inequities there have been steps made in improving legal provisions in order to have a better distinction between the dependent and independent activities. However the legal frame has to be extended in order to regulate the so-called service providing contracts that are still used in a way that can generate inequities for the individuals.
