There is much debate about the economic treatment of platform workers. Generally, workers are paid for the services performed rather than for the time made available to the company. However, the conditions under which hourly wages can be waived as a means of securing the availability of the labour factor where and when it is needed, do not seem to have been fully explained; nor have suitable guidelines been drawn to orient the legislator, as well as the social partner organisations, in defining a method to establish which internal junctures of the employment relationship are to be taken into account with a view to setting a minimum remuneration level. Adopting an interdisciplinary perspective and a deductive-inductive method, this paper investigates the nexus between the permanent connectivity of workers, the temporal dimension of the employment relationship, and the remuneration practices of platforms, with a view to providing some policy recommendations.
