The debate on liminality in organisational contexts has provided relevant in-sights and contributions for the interpretation of the changing dynamics of con-temporary work, representing ambiguous transitions and positionings. This is even more relevant in the case of solo self-employment, which is accompanied by a di-versity of positions oscillating between autonomy and heteronomy, corresponding to different forms of liminality linked to both individual characteristics and organi-sational contexts in which individuals perform their activities. In the light of this debate, the article investigates the case of self-employment in the financial sector and makes a twofold contribution to the debate on liminality in organisational contexts. First, the concept of liminality is extended to a largely unexplored sector, where forms of work on the boundary between self-employment and employment are increasingly present. Second, the concept of liminality itself is rediscussed ac-cording to the scientific literature and the research conducted - since it does not necessarily represent a condition of transition between two different states but can also assume the characteristics of a permanent condition. In the conclusions, with the aim of highlighting the variety of liminal experiences inherent in contemporary work, a conceptual scheme is discussed to show some of the main trends charac-terising the transformation of employment relationships in a rapidly changing and increasingly fluid labour market.
Keywords: Liminality; self-employment; dependent employment; autonomy; heteronomy; financial sector.
