Invitation to ILAW Webinar: Litigating the Digital Platform Model – What's next?

The International Lawyers Assisting Workers Network (ILAW), with which the ETUC has a close cooperation in the framework of our ETUC Legal and Strategic Litigation Support Structure (ETUCLEX), would like to invite you to a moderated discussion on recent employment litigation against digital platform companies, as featured in our recent Issue Brief – Taken for a Ride: Litigating the Digital Platform Model. You will hear from lawyers from around the world who have been involved in some of the cases highlighted in this brief.

This webinar will examine and evaluate the strategies used by digital platform companies to avoid legal obligations to drivers/riders, both in and out of court, and how workers have fought back and, in a growing number of cases, have won. ILAW hopes that this discussion will help generate debate about the advocacy and litigation strategies concerning these platform companies, and may inspire future action where labour rights remain contested.
