01 November 2018 / 30 May 2019

This project was an extension of the previous project conducted with Eurofound called “Exploring the employment and working conditions related to specific types of crowd employment/platform work”. It led to the publication of the study “On-location client-determined moderately skilled platform work: Employment and working conditions”. This type of platform work requires low to medium skills, execution on-location and acceptance of the offer of the worker by the client.
The working and employment conditions of these workers were assessed based on a combination of desk research and 17 semi-structured interviews with platform workers in Belgium, France, Germany and Poland, conducted in the first quarter of 2019. The report examined the same dimensions of the previous study (employment status and access to social protection; autonomy and control; earnings and taxation; skills, training and prospects, and representation).
