    An Empirical Analysis of Case Law on Platform Work in the EU

    The paper provides a quantitative analysis of case law on platform work issued in the EU Member States by October 2022. It presents a year-to-year deconstruction of case law; examines the distribution of case law per country and sector; compares the reclassification rates across all sectors, and identifies the criteria most referred to when deciding about the employment status of platform workers. It calls for a refocusing of the debate on employment classification on the under-researched sectors of platform work and emphasises the need for effective, comprehensive regulatory solutions.

    Protection against dismissal in the digital age

    The effects of digitalisation both accelerate the erosion of protection in traditional employment relationships and raise the need to extend protection to new forms of employment. The study gives examples of fragmented protection of employees, and tries to give an answer to the question: on what principle could be the basis for protection against arbitrary termination of employment by the employer.
