This policy brief considers the impact of online platforms on labour markets and on the employment relationship in particular. It discusses the importance of outsourcing platforms, arguing that the ‘collaborative economy’ used by the European Commission (EC) is a misleading concept, as the trend is in fact just an extension of the market mechanism.

The authors also propose concrete policies that would address the risks related to platform-mediated work.
