EU Platform Directive: reshaping the future of digital labour


In recent years, EU authorities have been highly active in regulating further employment law issues. The fate of the proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and the Council on improving working conditions through online platforms (Platform Directive) is currently being discussed in Brussels. The proposal for a directive primarily aims to clarify the statute of platform workers and introduce provisions on the use of algorithmic systems in the workplace. Currently, the majority of platform workers have self-employed status. It is estimated that by 2025, around 43 million people will be working via digital platforms in the EU. According to the project authors, a large group of these people may qualify as employees and the current regulations are not sufficient. – Bartosz Wszeborowski and Krzysztof Iwaniuk comment for Contact Online magazine.
