In the days of economic crisis, stiffening the employment relationship should not take place. On the contrary, introduction of regulations making this relationship flexible is justified both socially and economically.
Until that happens, the tendency to supplant contracts of employment by civil law contracts, which are more favourable for employers, will become the norm and understandably so. One cannot disregard the fact that when it comes to choosing the basis for employment, the decision-making entity is mainly employers. An employee wanting to take up employment, especially at the outset of his career, has very limited potential for negotiation or does not have it at all.
