CERVILLA GARZON, María José. The Social Security Coverage in the Spanish Legal System of Ordinary Self-Employed Workers Upon Cessation of Their Activities. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2012, n.38, pp. 241-264. ISSN 0718-6851. doi: 10.4067/S0718-68512012000100006.
In European countries, the most important difference in the social protection given to the self-employed workers, in terms of the protection given to the wage-earning employee, is the lack of social coverage when they cease their professional activity. This article is aimed at analyzing the most important aspects of the recent regulation in the Spanish legal system called “benefits over cessation of activities” for self-employed workers, by way of Act No. 32/2010, of 5 August, extremely innovative and without any points of reference to the comparative European Law, which aims at putting an end to this inequality.
