Top in Tech: regulating the gig economy, an unusual EU Council presidency


‘Top in tech’ is a monthly episode from the GC tech policy team. Each month, the team lift the lid on the latest in Europe’s ‘techlash’, identifying where the debate is heading in London and Brussels, the politics behind it, and what this might mean for the apps and online services we use every day.

Conan D’Arcy, Senior Practice Lead for TMT is joined by Senior Associate Max von Thun, Senior Associate, speaking from Brussels, who specialises in a number of areas including semiconductors and competition policy and Senior Associate Franck Thomas, who is an expert in the EU legislative process, particularly focusing on platform regulation and the telecoms sector.

This month, we are looking ahead to what is coming down the tracks in the next six months in the EU, focusing on:

  1. Platform workers regulation - European Commission proposals affecting the gig economy
  2. The unusual nature of the French Presidency of the Council of the EU, set against the backdrop of the presidential elections
