What will be the effect of algorithmic decision-making systems and AI in the workplace? With the digital transition, the workplace has rapidly introduced digital technologies for remote work, surveillance, and algorithmic management of workers. It has already been shown that ubiquitous surveillance causes stress and anxiety among workers and decreases trust in the workplace.

There are also emerging signs that profound shifts in workplace management accompany algorithmic decision-making systems and affect the exercise of power and workers’ rights. This is especially visible in the platform economy but is spread widely across the economy, including in more ‘traditional sectors. The mainstreaming of automated management systems has implications for the social partnership between workers and companies and worker representation and consultation around the EU.
