On 14 October 2022, the ministers of labour of 9 Member States (Belgium, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain), wrote a letter to the CZ Presidency asking to make the triggering of the legal presumption of the employment relationship easier - something that was also emphasized in the opinion.
On 25 October 2022, several stakeholders (ETUC, JOC, CECOP, EUROPEAN YOUTH FORUM, SOLIDAR) sent a letter to the European Institutions; they focused mainly on the issue of bogus self-employment and the inadequacy of the presumption of employment dependent on two out of five criteria of subordination being met (in line with the opinion). Furthermore, the letter expressed concern on the voluntary decision to pay for “social protection, accident insurance or other forms of insurance, training measures or similar benefits to self-employed persons working through that platform (…) should not be regarded as determining elements indicating the existence of an employment relationship" - the opinion had introduced an amendment on this recital to ensure that "it should not be used to circumvent the legal presumption or to reintroduce a notion of subordination".
On 12 July 2023 the rapporteur Yonnec Polet was interviewed by Agence Europe about his opinion and his views on the European Parliament's and the Council's positions on the topic. The inteview was titled: "For Committee of Regions, creation of ‘third’ status for digital platform workers must be avoided at all costs".
