Infoclip - working conditions of the platform economy workers

Description

Platform economy work is making use of an online platform (for example the one of companies operating in the food delivery sector, in order to enable organisations or individuals to contact other organisations or individuals to solve specific problems, or to have access to specific services in exchange for payment. Platform economy work is considered as a non-standard form of employment. Therefore, the working conditions and the social rights of platform workers are not enshrined in standard labour regulation. In the European Parliament, the rapporteur of EMPL Committee Elisabetta GUALMINI (S&D, IT) presented her draft report on 19 May 2022. Instead of having five criteria to determine whether the platform is an 'employer' , the rapporteur proposes to add other concrete elements and place this (non-exhaustive) list in recital 24.
