EU countries must regulate worker rights by app

The countries of the European Union, according to an announcement from Belgium this Monday (11), reached an agreement to regulate a law that provides rights for workers through applications.

For the Belgian delegation, as published on the social network“this will improve the rights and conditions of more than 28.5 million Europeans working in the platform economy”

With the introduction of the new law, each country must determine the criteria for a self-employed worker to be considered an employee of the company for which they provide services. However, the agreement, which was resisted by France and Germany, must still be approved by the European Parliament.

Since 2021, the EU summit has discussed regulating the rights of workers using apps – whether they are transporting passengers or delivering food.

In December last year, EU Labor and Employment ministers advanced the agreement, but a group of countries opposed parts of the text. The same happened in February this year, when the standards were announced, but were vetoed.

This Monday (11), the bloc resumed the discussion and the agreement, which for the European Commissioner for Labor and Social Rights, the Luxembourgish Nicolas Schmit, guarantees workers “more rights” and the platforms “protections without hampering development capacity”, was closed.

However, Move Eu, the association responsible for representing transport companies such as Uber and Bolt, believes that the text did not reach a “harmonized approach across the EU”, which, for the association, “creates even more legal uncertainty for app drivers”.

On March 4, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva proposed a bill to the National Congress that aims to regulate the activity of four-wheel app drivers.

If approved by deputies and senators, the regulation will place app drivers in the category “platform self-employed worker” that will have a union.

This category will guarantee that the working day does not exceed 12 hours per platform, in addition to payment of a minimum value of R$32.10 per hour worked and social security rights.
