Briefing Paper 103 – Improving working conditions in platform work

On 9 December 2021 the European Commission presented a proposed directive on improving working conditions in platform work. This was the latest step of a path started some years before and reflecting the political will of EU institutions to regulate a fast-growing platform economy. The pandemic has given great impetus to the sector, but has also exposed the unfair working conditions of platform workers, opening a window of opportunity for improving the situation.

While the Commission’s proposal in the hands of the European Parliament and the Council, SOLIDAR with this briefing paper will firstly recall the path that led to the presentation of the directive proposal, secondly, will delve into its main features and lastly, will present a non-exhaustive set of recommendations that we hope will guide the final outcome of this legislative process.
