Freelancer Contract/Free Service Contract (Frame Contract possible)

ONLY FOR FREELANCER BASED IN AUSTRIA: Workers on these contracts are insured under the terms of the General Social Insurance Act (Allgemeines Sozialversicherungsgesetz, ASVG), which applies to all employees, and thus are covered by health, industrial injuries and pension insurance but excluded from unemployment insurance. However, they are not eligible for sickness benefits and any severance pay. Although holders of ‘free service contracts’  are – in terms of social security – treated as employees, they are, in matters related to taxes (i.e. tax declarations), dealt with as self-employed and must submit tax returns in accordance with rules applying to self-employed persons. The hybrid character of their employment relationship is also manifested in the fact that ‘freelance contractors’ provide an ongoing service, even though often on a fixed-term basis, and are in fact often completely dependent on their quasi-employer, while they are, formally, not subject to the instruction of the client and free to schedule their working time. Working materials, in general, have to be made available to these workers by the client. Labour law provisions generally do not apply to them.  - EUROFUND-
