Keywords: atypical work, fundamental individual rights, maternity protection
The essay considers some contractual typologies enacted by Act 276/03, on the Labour Market Reform - mainly, the fixed term contract, the intermittent work, the project-based work - in order to understand whether individuals' protection and, particularly, maternity protection are weaker than protections granted to the classical employment. Then, the Author concludes that the new works' regulation, since it does not provide adequate protective measures, has worsen one existing problem: the problem of effective protection of maternity in the atypical work. It is then suggested the need to revise the legal regulation, by identifying techniques and tools turned to insert fundamental individual rights, to guarantee their effective and free exercise, and to place specific limits against the violation of the norms which provide them.
