Definition: Digitalization is transforming societies and economies worldwide at
an unprecedented scale and pace. Following this phenomenon, new forms of
employment have been emerging in various sectors, such as the digital platform
economy. The emergence of new forms of employment, such as work on digital
platforms, requires the adaptation of the existing social protection systems to the
specific situation and needs of such workers.
Method: The present paper is based on descriptive - analytic method, seeking
the answer to this question: How can social protection systems adapt to changing
forms of work to ensure full and effective coverage for workers in all forms of
employment, including “new” forms of employment in digital platforms?
Result: Findings demonstrate that current social protection coverage for workers
on digital platforms reveals significant gaps and risks. Therefore, focusing the
challenges and opportunities generated by the digital economy, we tried to
identify and introduce common features that lead to development of mechanisms
of reducing the gaps and risks. Combining the contributory and non-contributory
mechanisms based on equitable and sustainable financing mechanisms, we try to
ensure comprehensive and adequate social security for all.
