Summary/Abstract: The European Commission's recent concerns include measures to improve working conditions for working on platforms and to support the sustainable growth of digital work platforms in the EU. There is a need to regulate the area of work on digital platforms – ensuring that people working through digital work platforms can enjoy their employment rights and social benefits. Workers will also benefit from additional protection for the use of algorithmic management (i.e., automated systems that support or replace managerial functions in the workplace). A common set of EU rules will provide greater legal certainty - enabling digital work platforms to fully benefit from the economic potential of the single market and a level playing field.
