The legal qualification of the working relationships of "gig-workers": new pronunciations and old methodological approaches

With the ruling of the Turin labour court on the controversy established by the Foodora riders, a long debated isssue in the labour law doctrine reappers in the digital economy. The issue - concerning the legal classification of the relationships established with the app-driven workers - is dealt with in the same terms and with the same arguments already used in the past in the case concerning the pony express workers: it feels like more than 30 years of legal reflection and intense legislative interventionism on (new) forms of work had left no trace.
