Platform work is non-standard work facilitated by online platforms which use digital technologies to 'intermediate' between individual suppliers (platform workers) and buyers of labour. Platform work has rapidly developed since it first emerged in the EU, though concerns have been raised about the working conditions of platform work and the risk of precariousness it entails. Platform work has, therefore, been identified as a policy priority by European policy-makers.

This study presents a literature review that focuses on the
challenges and risks of precariousness of platform work and
explores possible pathways for EU action.
