The impact of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights on new economic models is not always direct and its perimeter is often prone to inequality, which disproportionately affects vulnerable agents such as workers.
The fundamental right to fair working conditions may be threatened on certain occasions in the context of collaborative economy models and it is necessary to strive for more nuanced regulations.
The European Commission and Parliament have repeatedly expressed their concern about these risks and, especially, the lack of specific regulation that could benefit an inequality of conditions between the actors involved in this business model. It is necessary to analyze the effectiveness of the responses that European countries give to these threats and the recommendations given by the authors and other international institutions to seek appropriate guidance.
The norm that technology evolves faster than the legal systems does not render fundamental rights violations justifiable.
