Learn more about Fairwork Germany:

The Fairwork Germany Ratings 2021 report evaluates the working conditions in 12 of the most popular digital labour platforms in Germany, such as Gorillas, Helpling, Lieferando, and Uber.

Over the last two years, the COVID pandemic has shaped the platform economy in unprecedented ways. The increasing number of workers joining the platform economy has gone hand in hand with new platforms entering the German digital labour market. 2021 also saw an increase in collective action by platform workers to demand better pay and protections. For a second year, the Fairwork ratings highlight the wide variety of labour standards in the German platform economy, showing that working conditions, far from being homogeneous, differ significantly from platform to platform. Most importantly, our report shows how the increased competition in the market has not necessarily translated into improved labour standards. While some platforms have implemented policies over the past year to offer their workers better rights, overall, there is a long way to go for most platforms to offer decent labour standards.
