With Law no. 99/13, the Italian Legislator introduced new legal instruments for human resources management in companies that subscribed a network contract. This essay aims at analysing the differences between the posting of workers, co-employment and joint hiring as regulated by Artt. 30 and 31 of delegated decree 276/2003. After a reconstruction of the main interpretative perspectives recently proposed by the doctrine, the analysis underpins an interpretation of co-employment - as regulated by the legal provisions currently in force - in terms of «posting of workers with multi-party». Nevertheless, the investigation highlights a plurality of regulatory gaps and incoherencies, as well as practical issues that will require normative amendments and/or administrative clarifications, and that are currently preventing companies from implementing co-employment.
