Will Platform Operators Worldwide Be Scrutinized More Strictly?

Yes.

A British court last year demanded Uber pay its drivers in the country the national minimum wage and other worker benefits, like statutory holiday pay, which posed a big challenge to the gig economy. The European Union's Court of Justice, its supreme court, earlier ruled that Uber is a passenger transport company rather than an information agency, and must be supervised more strictly when operating in the EU.

European legislators will enhance legislation and regulation over platform companies in terms of labor protection, competition, tax and data this year.
