Technology and law for the future of work we want

Abstract
The nature of work, the substance of jobs, the types of party involved, their legal and operational relationships, the formation of those working relationships: there is very little in the world of work that is not subject to some form of technology-driven transformation. This, perhaps, is nothing new. After all, modern labour and employment law emerged as a response to a technologically induced industrial revolution that triggered wholesale societal transformation. As some observers predict the most radical change in the labour market since the first industrial revolution, this begs the question: if the future of work is set to change, what will the future of labour law be? If technology is disrupting employment, how is it causing a disruption in labour and employment law?
