At its meeting of 23 October 2019, the Senate approved the draft law converting Decree-Law No 101 dated 3 September 2019, containing urgent provisions for the protection of employment and for the resolution of corporate crises (the so-called business and corporate crises decree). With specific reference to riders working with digital platforms, the application of a different protection regime has been envisaged. Employment protection is specifically provided for those who have a permanent and hetero-organised employment contract. On the other hand, riders who work occasionally and on a self-employed basis are granted minimum levels of protection. Specifically, the latter are (i) guaranteed coverage against accidents and occupational illness, the costs of which are borne by the customer and (ii) paid a minimum hourly fee based on the minimum tables provided for by the National Collective Bargaining Agreements and equivalent agreements. There is also an obligation to draw up individual contracts in writing and it is stipulated that workers must receive all the information necessary for the protection of their interests, rights and safety.
