I racer They are employees of digital platforms. Therefore, they must be contracted with appropriate contracts. The European Commission will launch the action package on Wednesday. The directive risks forever changing the fate of the workers of the self-employment economy in Italy and the old continent. We’re talking about 1.5 million people who work today at companies like Glovo, JustEat, Deliveroo and UberEats. JustEat already applies logistics contract to its passengers. Others are currently using the contract signed by Assodelivery with Ugl (a . Denied). Bologna). which links the guaranteed minimum wage to delivery. But with delegate work package Nicholas Schmidt Everything can change.
Steering the passenger’s work

The newspaper states that the passenger will be considered dependent on the basis of some characteristics. For example, if he does not manage business risks or if he does not decide the prices of products. Everything will then be simplified by reversing the burden of proof. The employer must confirm that he is self-employed. Employment will include a series of protections such as Social Security.

In Italy, the Palermo Court, while the Supreme Court held that with the Jobs Act, the typical forms of dependency protection should be applied. A few days ago the court of Florence denounce Deliveroo for anti-union behaviour.
A million and a half without protection
In October Milan Court Instead condemned For illegal recruitment against Uber. Instead Deliveroo was fined for a passenger data breach. In three years, the number of riders doubled: in 2018 it was 695 thousand, and today it is one and a half million.
