Across Europe some debates and discussions have been taking place, prompted by the increasing misuse of certain forms of employment, such as among others, posting of workers and self-employment, in circumstances where the chosen form was not appropriate. For example, in Estonia, the most reason debates were about situations where a board member of a company had provided management, consultation and other services for the company, acting as a separate legal entity rather than having an individual employment contract or authorisation agreement, with the aim of avoiding employment taxes.

Praxis participates in a broader project, which aims at identifying forms of contracting work considered as fraudulent, analyse the reasons for and consequences of the use of these fraudulent forms, compile the measures and actions taken to combat the use of these forms of contracting work. Praxis gives an overview of the Estonian situation.
