Social protection of non-standard workers: The case of platform work

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Self-employment, part-time work, platform work, crowd work and other forms of (sometimes unpaid or shared) work are on the rise. By defining the challenges accompanying the social security of these non-standard workers in general and the platform workers in particular, it becomes clear that systems in Europe cannot easily incorporate the new forms of work in their legislation. After the analysis of the standard and non-standard employment relations, the study continues with an elaborated definition of platform work in order to present a comparative study of five European countries and their legislation on social protection of this growing group of workers.
