This article discusses the proposal for the EU Directive on Platform Work. While welcoming the proposal advanced by the Commission, it highlights some of its shortcomings and suggests more robust protection both for the draft Chapter on the presumption of employment, which risks being vastly ineffective, and the Chapter on algorithmic management, whose protection needs a full extension to the self-employed, more substantial collective rights for workers, and broadening the scope to the entire EU workforce.
