Platform work is a form of employment that uses an online platform to match the supply of and demand for paid labour. In Europe, platform work is still small in scale but is rapidly developing. The types of work offered through platforms are ever-increasing, as are the challenges for existing regulatory frameworks. This report explores the working and employment conditions of three of the most common types of platform work in Europe. For each of these types, Eurofound assesses the physical and social environment, autonomy, employment status and access to social protection, and earnings and taxation based on interviews with platform workers. A comparative analysis of the regulatory frameworks applying to platform work in 18 EU Member States accompanies this review. This looks into workers’ employment status, the formal relationships between clients, workers and platforms, and the organisation and representation of workers and platforms.
Platformsarbejde er en beskæftigelsesform, hvor der anvendes en onlineplatform til at matche udbud og efterspørgsel efter lønnet arbejde. I Europa har platformsarbejde endnu kun lille omfang, men er i hastig udvikling. Der tilbydes stadig flere typer af arbejde via platforme, og der bliver stadig flere udfordringer for de eksisterende regelsæt. Denne rapport undersøger beskæftigelses og arbejdsvilkår for tre af de mest almindelige typer platformsarbejde i Europa, baseret på interviews med platformsarbejdere. De vurderede aspekter er fysisk og socialt miljø, autonomi, beskæftigelsesstatus, adgang til social sikring samt indtjening og beskatning. Rapporten indeholder desuden en sammenlignende analyse af de regelsæt, der finder anvendelse for platformsarbejde i 18 EU-medlemsstater.
