SDG 5 — Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

(1)  In the work place, access to new digital technology and the design of flexible work hours and types must include gender sensitive measures and be in the interest of all the staff.

(2)  Any developments leading to gender or otherwise based discrimination has to be properly regulated. This is especially the case for crowd-working platforms in the services sector. Standards of decent work must not be undermined by new work forms. Proper control and guidelines for platform economies is urgently needed.
