Hire & Fire podcast – occasional work and small-scale entrepreneurship
The labor market is changing. In this episode of Hire & Fire, we discuss who is an employee and who is not and how the traditional definition of an employee is challenged by the independent contractors’ companies and small-scale entrepreneurs in the so-called gig economy.
Elin Osbeck and Victoria Bergholz and their guest Samuel Engblom, Policy Director at Swedish trade union confederation TCO, discuss the rapid evolution of the labor market. An interesting ruling by the Administrative Court of Appeal, regarding who is responsible for the work environment of the independently employed, has them wondering what the role of the old employment legislation will be in the new economy.
