Quel droit du travail à l’ère des plateformes numériques ?

The development of the use of digital intermediation work is accompanied by the growth of labor demand, in a context of reconfiguration of reporting. The economic model of digital platforms, designated by the term “ubérisation” is based on the use of a flexible workforce, available, inexpensive, and supporting business risks. The legal debate crystallizes around qualifying attempts, amid litigation involving the leading companies of this “industry”: the digital worker is it an employee, independent, semi-independent? Should there be a special status to this kind of activity? The challenge of adapting labor law to the digital revolution so involves considering economic dependence in which there are workers in this economy to determine the pathways to improving their protection. This study examines these issues under the French legal framework. [googletranslate_en]
