La plateforme vaudoise Batmaid attaquée pour ses conditions de travail - rts.ch - Suisse

Submitted by rruggia on Mon, 07/22/2019 - 10:06

En quatre ans, la plateforme vaudoise Batmaid s'est taillé la part du lion dans le marché des ménages privés. Mais le syndicat Unia s'apprête à dénoncer l'entreprise aux autorités pour les conditions de travail des 1700 nettoyeuses qu'elle a recrutées. Depuis son lancement en 2015, Batmaid a connu un développement fulgurant. Aujourd'hui, la société compte 50 employés et fait travailler près de 1700 nettoyeuses, sorties du travail au noir, auprès de 10'000 clients.

Big data et protection sociale : au-delà de la lutte contre la fraude, des opportunités à saisir pour améliorer l’accès aux droits

Submitted by pmassetti on Tue, 03/05/2019 - 16:23

Cairn.info  - Regards 2017/2 (N° 52)  En 2016, les Caisses d’allocations familiales (CAF) ont détecté près de 43 000 fraudes, soit 8 % de plus que l’année précédente, pour un montant de 275 millions d’euros. La Caisse nationale (CNAF) a expliqué cette hausse par l’accroissement de l’efficacité des dispositifs de contrôle et non par l’augmentation de la fraude elle-même. Ces résultats, ajoutés à ceux des années précédentes sont notamment liés au développement du data mining, un procédé qui repose sur le big data.

Submitted by massetti on Thu, 09/20/2018 - 14:43

Hans-Böckler-Stiftung (2018) In many European countries, marginal part-time, (solo-)self-employment and secondary jobs have been increasing since the last decades. The question about the provision of social protection and labour legislation for these types of employment is the starting point for a project entitled "Hybrid working arrangements in Europe", directed by the WSI. Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Poland, Italy, Denmark and Austria comprise the group of countries selected in order to investigate "hybrid work" in the context of different welfare state regimes.
