Upcoming policy debates

Following the adoption of the resolution by the European Parliament on 16 September on the fair working conditions, rights and social protection for platform workers, the European Commission is expected to publish its draft legislation on platform workers shortly on Wednesday 8 December.

This draft legislation is eagerly anticipated by the Renew Europe group in the European Parliament and also by the ALDE Party, which in a recent resolution recognised that the rising digital platform economy also has an impact in the provision of labour and organisation of work, and that “the increase of online platform workers across Europe and its transnational nature demands an initiative at the European level to ensure social protection and social-labour rights for online platform workers, regardless of their employment status, while respecting the independence of these workers in how and when they work”.

The own initiative report that was adopted by the European Parliament was led by Renew MEP Sylvie Brunet as rapporteur.
