Extending social protections to workers in the sharing economy
By 2016, 5% of Europeans have been providers of services in the sharing economy. Many workers in the sharing economy, like entrepreneurs in general, are in uncertain or disadvantaged situations and despite being prone to the same social risks as traditional workers, they are not entitled to the same social benefits. Regulations should take into consideration the particularities of this type of work in order to improve the possibility of social safeguards for these workers.
