On 12 July EMPL organises a public hearing on “The impact of business models, including the platform economy, on employment and social security in the EU”. The main objective will be to deepen the Committee’s understanding of the factual and legal impact of those business models on employment and social security.

It will be in particular of interest under which circumstances persons employed through, for instance, online platforms enjoy worker status or being self-employed or under which conditions they are covered by social security systems. 4 experts have been invited and their presentations will be followed by an exchange of views with Members.
