Platform work: Types and implications for work and employment - Literature Review

Over the past years, developments in digital technology have fuelled the emergence of online platforms that match the supply and demand of goods and services. As part of Eurofound’s research activities on ‘work and employment in the digital age’, and more specifically its research strand related to platforms, this paper aims to provide a review of relevant literature on platform work, notably as regards the different emerging types of platform work and the related working conditions, legal developments and trends and changes in the labour market.
