The priority issues that we focus on are:
Definition of an employer - getting clarity and consistency as well as ensuring companies take their responsibilities seriously (fullt arbetsgivaransvar).
Arbetsmiljöverket - shaping their role and responsibilities given the realities of the world of work today and the specificities of the platform economy. They should still protect workers but evolution is needed, and decisions made about who is best placed to be responsible in different situations.
Safety and security - we work to underline that using ”egenanställning” gives a high level of security and access to the welfare system and social benefits such as the right to A-kassa.
Swedish Enforcement Authority (Kronofogden) - Companies which allow workers to be self-employed should not be liable for debts accrued by users of these platforms. The Swedish Enforcement Authority - the government agency in charge of debt collection - should instead direct its attention to the relevant individual and not the self-employment company who is purely a go-between.
We stay away from the issue of taxation and do not call for reduced rates for the platform economy sector.
