Research background: Globalization, the development of technology, demographic change are phenomena that radically change the nature of work. The advent of modern information technologies represents a worldwide transition to the information society, and the ubiquitous technological development brings ever newer forms of working. The development of a sharing (collaborative) economy is global in nature. A wide range of models for carrying out work with the help of digital collaborative platforms is created and a natural person in the position of a service provider performs activities with a high degree of independence and flexibility. There are several collaborative platforms but not all of them show the characteristics of a pure sharing economy, and there are considerations as to whether, in some cases, there is no concealment of employment relationships.
Purpose of the article: The author points out various models of collaborative economics, compares them and assesses the nature of the work performed. Based on the findings, the author concludes whether the person performs work in a commercial relationship or whether this work can be perceived as dependent work in terms of labour law.
Methods: Models of collaborative economics need to be analyzed and compared. The induction method is used in the examination of individual court decisions. The conclusion is a summary of the acquired knowledge. Findings & Value added: The issue is highly topical due to the ambiguity of the nature of work relationships. In practice, this is evidenced by several lawsuits. The article will contain proposals de lege ferenda.
Key words: collaborative economy / sharing economy / collaborative platforms / flexible work
