The Spanish Government has introduced a regulation which establishes: i) the presumption of employment in digital delivery platforms, and ii) the right of workers’ representatives to be informed about the parameters, rules and instructions on which the algorithms that may have an impact on working conditions are based. This article describes the new law and analyses the novelty of this regulation and its expected impact. The main conclusion is that with this law the Spanish legislator is seeking to clarify that the new technological options – digital algorithms and platforms – are simply the means of performing an economic activity and therefore people who render services within their scope should be considered as employees.
