The digital platform economy and the challengesit poses to labour law (L’economia delle piattaforme e le sfide del diritto del lavoro)

According to the classical analytic categories (continuity/discontinuity; complementarity/substitutive) and putting aside the polarizing public and scientific debates, the powerful impact of the digitalisation of individual/collective dimensions of work on the protection of workers' rights is undeniable. This paper will examine the juridical implications arising from these digital platforms, their effect on the labour market and the distortional phenomena that are currently emerging: a 'race to the bottom' for competition, social dumping, social 'gigging' accumulation of sensitive personal data, to name a few. Finally, this paper will examine the question of the juridicial status applicable to the workers engaging in this digital labour market and the new digital rights that are emerging in the legislative and comparative jurisprudential scope.
