Particularly careful fact finding may be required where a woman who gives birth has previously been engaged in self-employed activity , in order to determine whether self-employment continues or not.
Whether, in a case where it does not, the woman can rely on principles similar to those in C-507/12 Saint-Prix remains to be determined. Submissions are directed as to whether that question should be stayed pending the decision of the CJEU in C-442/16 Florea Gusa.
