数字劳动平台已在全球范围内得到了广泛应用，它们包括：为交通运输提供定位服务的平台（比如：优步、Grab 和滴滴出行），为外卖业务提供定位服务的平台（比如：户户送、Glovo 和美团），以及为自由职业、编程、零工等业务提供网页服务的群众外包平台。
本次讲座的内容基于由开讲学者参与合著的且即将发布的一份重要国际劳工组织报告。该报告的起草综合了对全球多个行业约 1.2 万名劳动者和 80 位企业受访者的广泛调查，第一次较为完整地描绘了平台商业运行模式和在各种数字劳动平台上开展业务的企业和劳动者的实践图景。
The use of digital labour platforms has become widespread around the globe. They include location-based platforms for transportation (such as Uber, Grab and DiDi) and delivery (such as Deliveroo, Glovo and Meituan) as well as web-based platforms for freelancing, programming and microtasking.
The regulation of the relationship between workers and the platforms has been controversial around the world. Questions of social security, work safety (especially during the pandemic), collective bargaining, data protection, algorithmic management, dispute resolution and so on are being addressed by legislatures, courts and other institutions across six continents.
In some jurisdictions, law-makers and judges have construed an employment relationship between the platforms and their workers (for example France, Spain and until recently California). Other jurisdictions have opted for an intermediate category (United Kingdom, Canada). In some countries, some worker rights appear to apply to platform workers but not others (Australia, China).
This lecture is based on a major forthcoming ILO report, of which I am a co-author that explores these issues. The report draws on surveys conducted among about 12,000 workers and 80 business respondents across the world in multiple sectors. It provides a first major comprehensive picture of platform business models, as well as the experiences of workers and businesses on online web-based and location-based platforms.
