Dear Members and Partners,
The next Meeting of the IOE Policy Working Group on Industrial Relations (IRPWG) will be held on the 19 March 2018 from 13.00 – 14.30 CET in the ILO Room III, Geneva.
The topic of this meeting will be Independent Contractors and Industrial Relations
The debate on the future of work has raised interesting questions on the definition of employee or self-employed worker and the related set of rights and obligations. In particular, doubts have arisen on the status of crowd workers and self-employed working through platforms.
This meeting will focus on how Industrial Relations are framed for independent contractors in: Canada, France, and Mexico.
Speakers will briefly present the respective legislation and practice in these countries and will be able to reply to questions from the floor. Participants will also be able to share their own experiences in a roundtable discussion.
The detailed agenda can be found in the side panel and on the dedicated IOE webpage.
Please register your interest in participating in person or through Webex with Ms Dalia Farag (email@example.com) via the link in the side panel, before the 15 March 2018.
Interpretation will be provided in English, French and Spanish (however, the Webex connection will be only available in English).
