Student thesis: Master's Thesis


On this essay, we intend to analyse the legal framework of digital platform service providers within Portuguese labour law. To this effect, we address the on-demand economy phenomenon and the concept of employee within the Portuguese legal system and within the scope of European Union law. Finally, we take into account decisions from foreign and international bodies in order to try and present a solution to this problem.
