The project focuses on current problems related to the legal status of the Slovenian small farmer in fields of labor law and social security law. These emerging issues are outlined in recent government resolution on strategic directions of development of Slovenian agriculture and food industry in 2020 and in EU Common Agricultural Policy until 2020, which will serve as the main orientation of the research. The research is highlighting four pressing issues, two in the field of labor law and two in the field of social security law. Analysis in the field of labor law is centered on the farmer as an employer and his responsibility for ensuring safety and health at work. The part on social security firstly reviews models for co-financing social security contributions from public funds, designed to sustain social security of the farmers in the periods of economic downfall, and later on examines the status of unemployed farmers. The research is structured in three parts. It starts with the domestic and international law analysis, followed by the comparison of successful international models - good practices - of legislative regulation of the four, previously described emerging topics. Comparative legal analysis covers Germany (especially Bavarian region), Austria, Italy (region Friuli-Venezia Giulia) and the Scandinavian model. In conclusion, the project formulates proposals for the transfer of good legislative solutions to the Slovenian legal framework.
