Protecting workers in new forms of employment

This paper prepared jointly by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the International Social Security Association (ISSA) for the 1st BRICS Employment Working Group meeting addresses the challenges of ensuring that workers in new forms of employment are covered by labour protection and social protection. It draws upon examples from BRICS countries, but also from other countries, to highlight the diverse solutions for a human-centred approach to the future of work, and highlights potential issues for further discussion.
