The legal situation of platform workers is a multi-factorial issue. It is outside the limits of current labour law protection. However, this does not mean that they are not in a vulnerable position. It is therefore important that the concepts of employment and labour law protection do not overlap. Labour law protection only covers a range of employment activities. Whether the EU rules will make any real difference is a big question. The other question is: what protection do platform workers themselves want? Are they equally interested in legislation? That is why in my study I would like to look more closely at the issues that are most relevant in this area.
