Yhteenveto

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.

    Tiettyjen alustatyön tyyppien työehdot ja -olot

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Alustatyö on työmuoto, jossa käytetään verkkoalustaa sovittamaan yhteen palkallisen työn tarjonta ja kysyntä. Euroopassa alustatyö on edelleen pienimuotoista, mutta se kehittyy nopeasti. Alustojen kautta tarjotaan koko ajan moninaisempia töitä, mikä lisää myös haasteita olemassa oleville sääntelykehyksille. Tässä raportissa selvitetään kolmen yleisimmän alustatyön tyypin työehtoja ja -oloja Euroopassa alustatyöntekijöiden haastattelujen perusteella. Arvioitavia näkökulmia ovat muun muassa fyysinen ja sosiaalinen ympäristö, itsenäisyys, työsuhde, sosiaaliturvan saatavuus, ansiot ja verotus. Raportissa tehdään myös vertaileva analyysi alustatyöhön 18:ssa EU:n jäsenvaltiossa sovellettavista sääntelykehyksistä.
