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.

    Anställnings- och arbetsförhållanden för valda typer av arbete via digitala plattformar

    Författare: 
    Eurofound

    Arbete via digitala plattformar är en sysselsättningsform där utbud och efterfrågan på betald arbetskraft matchas via en plattform på nätet. Inom EU förekommer detta än så länge bara i begränsad skala, men fenomenet växer snabbt. I takt med att fler och fler typer av uppdrag förmedlas via plattformar ökar utmaningarna för den befintliga lagstiftningen. I den här rapporten granskas anställnings- och arbetsförhållanden inom tre av de vanligaste formerna av arbete via digitala plattformar i EU med hjälp av intervjuer med personer som är verksamma i plattformsekonomin. Några aspekter som undersöks är fysisk och social miljö, autonomi, anställningsstatus, socialt skydd, inkomst och beskattning. Rapporten innehåller också en jämförande analys av de rättsliga ramarna för arbete via digitala plattformar i 18 medlemsländer.

  • New forms of employment

    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.
