The prerogatives of the gig economy: flexibility and contacts in real time.
Probably you’re wondering what is it? To fully understand the phenomenon just think that the most known case of gig economy is certainly #Uber.
This is an App that allows those who need a ride to rely on Uber drivers, private citizens who are available to provide a ride in the city against payment.
This new trend is a model of work based on the performance of services or professions when needed.
The workers are all freelancers, they are not employees of a company, and the “work contract” they have with their client is temporary, that means duration equal to the provision of the activity.
In short, one is called to carry out a specific task, obviously in line with his/her knowledge, skills and expertise and, and once the service is provided, the working relationship ends.
In this way, there are no real contractual obligations and at the centre there is the digital: worker and customer find themselves directly online thanks to a special App.
There are still those who keep on aspiring to the famous long-term employment contract?
