The emergence of the platform economy, symbolised by the two frontrunners Uber and Deliveroo, is reshaping business and the way it is conducted.
European Trade Union institute recently published a working paper (edited by Isabelle Daugareilh, Christophe Degryse and Philippe Pochet) bringing together two parallel but complementary approaches to the impact of the platform economy on working conditions and social law.
The paper delivers interesting insights and food for thought:
How do labour market actors respond to these developments? What is the role of Public Employment Services? What are challenges and opportunities for jobseekers?
Also interesting in this context: 2016, the PES Network published an exploratory paper on “Atypical Employment and the Role of European PES” focussing on the radical new working relationships which have emerged in recent years through the creation of digital platforms.
