Fairwork Foundation

The Fairwork Foundation is a project that is working to set and measure standards in the platform economy.

  • Certification
    To create a certification scheme, to attest where core labour standards are being adhered to in the platform economy.
  • Ethical Choices
    To reduce the information asymmetry between workers, firms and consumers – so that end-users have the ability to make informed, ethical choices about the digital products they buy.
  • Working Conditions
    To improve the working conditions of people employed in the digital gig economy, and encourage firms to monitor and improve their production networks.

Proudly rated

NoSweat fully supports the Fairwork Foundation's initiative.

The Fairwork Foundation has collaboratively developed the following five principles through three stakeholder workshops that we hosted in 2018.

The first was run together with the International Labour Organisation in Geneva. The second, was co-organised with Research ICT Africa in Johannesburg; and the third was co-organised in Bangalore with the International Institute of Information Technology.

Here are the five principles and how NoSweat aligns with them.

Pay

Fairwork guidelines

Fairness relating to pay includes levels of pay, considering both minimum and living wages. Along with the amount of remuneration, this also involves fair pay terms including ensuring that worker's costs are met. For location-based and macrowork, platforms protect against non-payment for completed work. For microwork platforms, non-payment is effectively regulated.

Payment protection

NoSweat follows strict accounting practices. Every job is secured with an official Purchase Order from the client.

We monitor the freelancers' hours and bring any anomalies to the client's attention before things can get out of hand.

Conditions

Fairwork guidelines

Fair conditions cover the way in which the work is carried out. This includes aspects of the tasks being clear with reasonable timing, and particularly on microwork platforms, reviewed before posting to the platform. Health and safety is an important consideration, particularly in relation to risky work, but also relating to working hours and task specific concerns (like exposure to stressful or damaging content). The platform should provide stable employment and the possibility of further employment opportunities or career development.

NoSweat

All jobs are checked by NoSweat staff before they are posted. We ensure the rate and duration is as realistic as possible for the task at hand.

All jobs are contracted on an hourly basis to protect both the freelancer and the client. If things do not work out, either party can terminate the agreement based on the provided notice period.

Hourly jobs are protected against unreasonable time constraints.

Many jobs get extended if the freelancer proves to be worth their salt and the client has additional work to be done. This creates a solid foundation for career development. Extensions also reflect very favourably on freelancers as a reliable resource for other clients.

Clients agree to our Fair and Safe Work Guidelines which indicates their compliance with the Basic Conditions of Employment act and the Occupational Health and Safety act.

Freelancers can lodge any grievances or issues on the Freelance Grievance page.

Contracts

Fairwork guidelines

The key issue with fairness of contracts is the employment status of the worker and whether this reflects the employment relationship. Self-employment status should not be used unless it accurately captures the worker’s status. Platforms should comply with employment law, including fair contract terms, vicarious liability, risk insurance, shared liabilities, and social provisions.

NoSweat

NoSweat follows strict accounting practices. Every job is secured with an official Purchase Order from the client.

We engage with the freelancer by providing them with a Purchase Order from NoSweat.

The Purchase Order outlines:

  • The nature of the work
  • The duration of the work, including start and end dates
  • The notice period for both the freelancer and client in case something does not work out
  • Basic equipment requirements
  • The client's details including contact people
  • A link to the Freelancer Grievance page if they need to report any issues

Governance

Fairwork guidelines

Fair governance involves how the platform operates across five dimensions. First, management, involving fairness in relation to the work process, including disciplinary practices. Second, communication, with clear lines of contact between workers and a representative of the platform. Third, accountability, involving transparency in relation to decision-making processes. Fourth, use of data, which should be justified with a clear purpose and only with explicit informed consent. Fifth, equality, which is cross-cutting and ensures no discrimination.

NoSweat

The NoSweat platform collects the minimum information we need from freelancers to be able to get them in front of the client effectively.

Freelancers can lodge any grievances or issues via the Freelance Grievance page. All grievances remain confidential. The freelancer stipulates whether they would like NoSweat to take action.

Representation

Fairwork guidelines

Fair representation requires that workers have a voice on the platform. Workers have the right to be heard by a platform representative and there should be a clear process by which workers can lodge complaints, receive a response, and access a dispute resolution process. The platform observes the ILO right to free association, not linked to worker status, but as a universal right. Similarly, the platform accepts collective representation of workers and collective bargaining.

NoSweat

Freelancers can lodge any grievances or issues via the Freelance Grievance page. All grievances remain confidential. The freelancer stipulates whether they would like NoSweat to take action.

NoSweat offers many channels of communication for freelancers. We have an on-line chat on the website that is responded to by a human. There is also WhatsApp, email, phone, Facebook and LinkedIn. All these channels are always monitored and answered.

NoSweat Work is a freelance and permanent placement and engagement management platform.

We help clients find freelance or full-time staff. After placement we manage the engagement from start to finish for the best outcome for both client and freelancer.
