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.
Rad na platformi oblik je rada kojim se putem internetske platforme nastoji uskladiti ponuda i potražnja za plaćenim radom. Taj je oblik rada i dalje relativno rijetko zastupljen u Europi, ali se vrlo brzo razvija. Sve je veći broj vrsta rada koje se odvijaju na platformi, kao i broj izazova za postojeće regulatorne okvire. U ovom su istraživanju na temelju razgovora s radnicima razmotreni uvjeti zapošljavanja i radni uvjeti triju najuobičajenijih vrsta rada na platformi u Europi. Analizirani aspekti uključuju fizičko i socijalno okruženje, neovisnost, radni status, pristup socijalnoj zaštiti, zaradu i oporezivanje. U istraživanju je predstavljena i usporedna analiza regulatornih okvira koji se primjenjuju na rad na platformi u 18 država članica EU-a.
This series reports on the new forms of employment emerging across Europe that are driven by societal, economic and technological developments and are different from traditional standard or non-standard employment in a number of ways. This series explores what characterises these new employment forms and what implications they have for working conditions and the labour market.
