Digital Platform Work Symposium: Current Issues and Future Possibilities on 22 June 9:30-1:00, OJW room, Gardens Point campus.
This was a hybrid format event (face to face and webinar).
Australians are increasingly working through online digital labour platforms which connect them, across various locations and scales, with enterprises or consumers seeking specific services. This symposium presents findings from four years of ARC and industry funded research projects alongside insights on global challenges and opportunities associated with digital platform work. Speakers will discuss a range of connecting topics relevant to the economic, social and legal contours of work performed in the ‘gig’ economy. These topics include international labour standards, disruptive innovation, policy and regulation, pay and working conditions, platform business models, worker resistance, gender, and recruitment and participation in digital platform work. We look forward to seeing you online or in-person at the event.
