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.

    Empleo y condiciones laborales de determinados tipos de trabajo en plataformas

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound

    El trabajo en plataformas es una forma de empleo que utiliza una plataforma en línea para adecuar la oferta a la demanda de trabajo remunerado. En Europa, el trabajo en plataformas aún es reducido en términos de escala, pero está desarrollándose rápidamente. Los tipos de trabajo ofrecidos a través de las plataformas no paran de crecer, al igual que los desafíos que suponen para los marcos normativos existentes. El presente informe analiza el empleo y las condiciones laborales de los tres tipos más comunes de trabajo en las plataformas en Europa, basándose en entrevistas realizadas a los trabajadores de las plataformas. Entre los aspectos analizados se incluyen el entorno físico y social, la autonomía, la situación laboral, el acceso a protección social, los ingresos y la fiscalidad. El informe también incluye un análisis comparativo de los marcos normativos que se aplican al trabajo de las plataformas en dieciocho Estados miembros.
