This paper aims to analyse legal regulations concerning self-employment in Italy and Spain. Given that both countries are characterised by a dualism between selfemployment and subordinate work, the author pays particular attention to legal figures, which do not fit easily into this division, namely economically dependent selfemployed workers (the Spanish case), collaborations organised by client and coordinated collaborations, organised by the independent contractor (the Italian case). The author tries to answer the question whether the Polish legislator can draw a lesson from foreign regulations.

Keywords: self-employment; employment relationship; Italian law; Spanish law
