Since the formula "more and better jobs”" EU policies have tended to associate with increased employment and creating jobs of quality. The paper highlights the lack of valuation analysis that the quantitative and qualitative changes in regulations has produced at work. From this point of view, Italy is an emblematic case of low attention to the consequences of continual production regulations on concrete labour market conditions. In fact, to meet the pressing invitations to adopt economic policies attentive to the socio-economic and environmental sustainability, it has opted for a continuous modification of labour law increasingly free from specific assessment and overall changes, reassuring the markets and relying on businesses as a way out of the crisis. Having missed the chance for sedimentation of the rules and a review of their effects, we move forward delineating a scenario in which we witness the growing inattention to the processes of precarious employment and the affirmation of a labour law that monetises performance and does not consider the worker as the weaker party to be protected.
