What is the European Directive on Platform Workers?

The European Directive on platform workers is a legislative proposal by the EU Commission to enhance working conditions for individuals employed through labour platforms.

Watch our interview with CXC’s EMEA Managing Director, Connor Heaney, as he provides a simple explanation of the Directive and what it means for workers and the organisations that engage these workers

Why is the EU Directive Necessary?

With an estimated 28 million platform workers in the EU, projected to increase to 43 million by 2025, the need for regulatory clarity becomes apparent.

While many platform workers are genuinely self-employed and value the flexibility of their status, approximately 5.5 million gig workers
have been misclassified, depriving them of essential employment rights.

The EU Commission aims to rectify this situation and ensure fair treatment for all platform workers through the Platform Work Package.
