Slash workers and changing models of labour regulation

Ivana Pais, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan

One consequence of the platform economy is the spread of ‘slash’ workers (someone who is an X/Y/Z), who often lack an adequate level of social protection. In this paper, we present first results from the SWIRL project (Slash Workers and Industrial ReLations), which investigates existing regulatory models and aims to develop new prototypes of industrial relations.
