On-location client-determined moderately skilled platform work

Employment and working conditions

Willem Pieter De Groen / Zachary Kilhoffer

Platform work – the matching of supply and demand for paid labour through online platforms – is a relatively new form of employment that is small in scale but steadily growing in importance. Besides the size also the diversity in platform work is increasing. The objective of this report is to contribute to the body of research on types of platform work by assessing the working and employment conditions for platform workers in on-location client-determined moderately skilled work. This type of platform work requires low to medium skills, execution on-location and acceptance of the offer of the worker by the client.
