Online labor markets are increasingly becoming a destination for work. These marketplaces include freelancing platforms such as Qapa and MisterTemp’ in France, and TaskRabbit and Fiverr in the USA. On those platforms, workers can find temporary jobs in the physical world such as moving furniture, or in the form of virtual microgigs such as helping with designing a website. I will present the results of a study of fairness on those platforms, and discuss the design of a model to enforce fairness in the Future of Work.
