The creation of the single market in the European Union is a continuing commitment. The European Commission published a series of documents in order to facilitate its accomplishment. In the Single Market Strategy and the Digital Single Market Strategy actions are focused on different levels. One of the targeted measures concerns creating additional opportunities for consumers, professionals and businesses. The concept of a balanced development of collaborative economy is particularly stressed. This concept is also known as sharing economy, access economy or peer-to-peer economy. Sharing economy business models present new opportunities to consumers, professionals and workers in the areas that have been governed by traditional rules. The new model challenges the well-established procedures. Indeed, there are many open questions. This article puts emphasis on the impact of sharing economy on the workers’ legal status and workers’ protection, particularly on the category of crowdworkers.
