The 50 th anniversary of the Workers’ Statute has provided the opportunity to stress, once again, the impact it has had on the world of work and the business community. The Workers’ Statute has contributed to modernising employment relationships by introducing fundamental principles enshrined in our Constitution and by supporting their actual implementation over the years, based on a coherent approach stemming from forward-looking and sustainable social reformism ideas. Upon the occasion of the 50 th anniversary, the drives for an extension of the scope of reflections beyond specific law issues are stronger than ever. This is mainly due to the overwhelming impact of the pandemic on the world of work and the business community in their entirety. In order to acknowledge the interdependency between the world of work, the environment, and technology, it is necessary to analyse in depth its implications and to focus on the necessary integration patterns between labour market policies, healthcare plans, and actions at environmental level.
