Περίληψη

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.

    Όροι απασχόλησης και εργασίας για συγκεκριμένες μορφές εργασίας που παρέχονται μέσω πλατφόρμας

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Η εργασία μέσω πλατφόρμας είναι μια μορφή απασχόλησης στην οποία χρησιμοποιούνται διαδικτυακές πλατφόρμες προκειμένου να συνδυαστεί η προσφορά με τη ζήτηση για έμμισθη εργασία. Στην Ευρώπη η εργασία μέσω πλατφόρμας εξακολουθεί να είναι περιορισμένη αλλά αναπτύσσεται ραγδαία. Οι μορφές εργασίας που προσφέρονται μέσω πλατφορμών αυξάνονται ολοένα και περισσότερο, όπως επίσης και οι προκλήσεις για τα υφιστάμενα ρυθμιστικά πλαίσια. Στην παρούσα έρευνα εξετάζονται οι όροι απασχόλησης και εργασίας τριών από τις σημαντικότερες μορφές εργασίας που παρέχονται μέσω πλατφόρμας στην Ευρώπη με βάση συνεντεύξεις, οι οποίες πραγματοποιήθηκαν με εργαζόμενους που παρέχουν την εργασία τους μέσω πλατφόρμας. Μεταξύ των πτυχών που αξιολογήθηκαν είναι το φυσικό και κοινωνικό περιβάλλον, η αυτονομία, το καθεστώς απασχόλησης, η πρόσβαση στην κοινωνική προστασία, το εισόδημα και η φορολογία. Στην έκθεση παρουσιάζεται επίσης συγκριτική ανάλυση των ρυθμιστικών πλαισίων που ισχύουν για την εργασία μέσω πλατφόρμας σε 18 κράτη μέλη της ΕΕ.
