On-location client-determined moderately skilled platform work: Employment and working conditions

The objective of this report is to contribute to the body of research on types of platform work by assessing the working and employment conditions for platform workers in on-location client-determined moderately skilled work. This type of platform work requires low to medium skills, execution on-location and acceptance of the offer of the worker by the client. The working and employment conditions are assessed based on a combination of desk research and 17 semi-structured interviews with platform workers in Belgium, France, Germany and Poland, conducted in the first quarter of 2019.
