  • Is That Lawful' Data Privacy and Fitness Trackers in the Workplace
    • Abstract: Data collected from fitness trackers worn by employees could be very useful for businesses. The sharing of this data with employers is already a well-established practice in the United States, and companies in Europe are showing an interest in the introduction of such devices among their workforces. Our argument is that employers processing their employees’ fitness trackers data is unlikely to be lawful under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Wearable fitness trackers, such as Fitbit and AppleWatch devices, collate intimate data about the wearer’s location, sleep and heart rate. As a result, we consider that they not only represent a novel threat to the privacy and autonomy of the wearer, but that the data gathered constitutes ‘health data’ regulated by Article 9. Processing health data, including, in our view, fitness tracking data, is prohibited unless one of the specified conditions in the GDPR applies. After examining a number of legitimate bases which employers can rely on, we conclude that the data processing practices considered do not comply with the principle of lawfulness that is central to the GDPR regime. We suggest alternative schema by which wearable fitness trackers could be integrated into an organization to support healthy habits amongst employees, but in a manner that respects the data privacy of the individual wearer.

  • 'Festina Lente’: The ILO and EU Agendas on the Digital
           Transformation of Work
    • Abstract: This article compares the International Labour Organization (ILO) and European Union (EU) agendas concerning the digital transformation of work, and addresses possible policy gaps and their implications for international and EU labour law. It critically reviews the current social acquis of both institutions and concentrates on the key analogies between the ILO’s Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work and some of the various regulatory initiatives taken by EU institutions in the context of the Pillar of Social Rights. The article finds that, despite the often articulated calls for urgent and original measures, both institutions’ programmes present largely a prudent continuation of traditional narratives, failing to strengthen the adequacy of existing labour regulation regimes. Besides their predominantly non-binding nature, the efficacy of the most future-oriented instruments is profoundly undermined by the unreasonable exclusion of those workers who bear most of the brunt of social disparities accelerated by digitalization and casualization of work. In addition, the implementation of these initiatives may be jeopardized by complex governance methods and unresolved tensions between conflicting approaches and objectives. The study concludes that, although positive signs are emerging in the supranational legal order, much remains to be done to address the multifarious challenges arising from the digital transformation.

  • Effective Representation: Whereto for Workers on Fruit and Wine Farms in
           South Africa'
    • Abstract: This article draws on empirical research that reveals the role played by farmworkers’ committees in the fruit and wine farming sectors in the Western Cape of South Africa, where trade union density is extremely low. It examines the legitimacy of these committees as a form of worker representation, with reference to relevant domestic labour legislation, common law, International Labour Organization (ILO) instruments and key private social codes, including the international Fairtrade Standard for Hired Labour. In the process, the relationship between the public and private governance instruments in the sector is considered. Farmworkers’ committees are found to fall through a regulatory gap between the different governance systems, highlighting their lack of integration and legal recognition. This is notwithstanding their potential to fill the representation gap which exists for many workers on farms. The article concludes by proposing a new approach to regulating these committees, primarily with a view to promoting more effective but still legitimate organizing and collective bargaining for all farmworkers, in the absence of representative trade unions.
