Agreement in the trilogue on the Directive on transparent and predictable working conditions has been reached between European Commission, Council and Parliament. Whether the Directive will indeed result in improved and more transparent working conditions for employees, in particular also those in a-typical forms of employment (crowdworkers, on-demand workers and many more), will only become apparent through the final text of the Directive and the concrete implementation of the Directive in the Member States, for which unfortunately these have been granted a period of three years.
