Dynamic Contracts: Changing employment practices in the digital era

November 2018 - Corporate & Commercial. Legal Developments by IR Global.

More articles by this firm.

Digital platforms designed to deliver professional services are changing the European employment landscape as both employers  and workers look for more flexible ways to work.

The pioneers of the digital platform and gig-economy phenomenon are service providers such as  Uber and Deliveroo, but the model has now spread to many other industries.

As a result, digital platforms have raised many legal questions and are subject to ongoing debates  in various countries. One of the main questions pertains to the legal qualification of the  digital platform worker; i.e. are they truly independent workers to be classed as  entrepreneurs who lack the protection of labour law, or are they employees who do enjoy full  labour law protection?

Another possibility is a hybrid classification (known as a worker in the UK) which offers  entitled to a select set of labour law protection.

Absent specific legislation on digital plat- form work, governments in developed economies are  struggling with the legal, social and economic impact of platform work. There have been an  increasing number of litigation suits in the USA, UK and continental Europe including, most  recently, the Netherlands.
