The Rebuttable Presumption of Employment in Practice – Possible Issues and Solutions

The European Commission’s proposal for a directive on improving the working conditions in platform work is leading the way in efforts to regulate this new form of work. While all the concerned parties welcome the directive, many have oppositive views on rebuttable presumption of the employment and its criteria.

To encourage evidence-based discussion and facilitate mutual understanding between various actors in the platform economy, Reshaping Work Dialogue initiative organized an interactive workshop exploring the impact of the platform work directive. This mini report summarizes the main discussion points, challenges, and possible solutions as seen by various stakeholders.

*This mini-report is the outcome of the workshop and not a comprehensive overview on the proposed directive. The views expressed in this mini-report are of the workshop participants.
