21210216 - Digitalizzazione del mercato del lavoro

The course focuses on the problems and on the regulatory and trade union instruments aimed at accompanying the processes of digitalisation of enterprises, with particular reference to the impacts on labour relations and workers' skills. Special attention will be given to the collection, interconnection and use of large amounts of information, which affect privacy, data security, digital identity, responsibilities related to the automation of production processes and transactions on digital markets. The student must first know the basic legal categories of technological innovation (the exam of Legal Foundations of Technological Innovation is therefore a necessary requirement to take the present exam).

The course is divided into two parts.
In the first part, the impact of digitalization on the employment relationship is explored. Particular attention is paid to the risks and opportunities related to the use of new technologies in human resource management from the stage of establishment of the employment relationship to the stage of management and termination of the relationship. European and national legislation on artificial intelligence, platform work and the labor law implications of using automated decision-making or monitoring systems will be examined.

The second part will be focused on the digitization of the labor market from the perspective of transitional labor markets and the interoperability of the databases of the different actors and institutions operating in the labor market, taking into account the current regulatory framework and the State-Region competencies. Particular attention is paid to the use of big data for the better functioning of the labor market, for the optimization of supply/demand matching, for the functioning of active labor policies and the alignment of skills offered and demanded. Special attention is paid to experiments in the use of blockchain in the social and labor spheres.
