France: Law 2016-1088
Law 2016-1088 of 9 August 2016 provides a legal definition of ‘electronic platforms’ and extends individual and collective rights to platform workers. Collective rights include workers’ right to create or join a union and to organise or participate in a strike and these may not be grounds for the client or platform to sever the contractual relationship. Since January 2018, for those workers who have generated over €5,099 of sales revenue, platforms must bear the costs of the workers’ occupational accident insurance coverage and must cover the costs of ‘the validation of academic credit due to work experience’, meaning to obtain professional certification for the work experience they have gained.
