Effects of Demographic Characteristics on the Attitude to Participate in Voluntary Social Insurance of Digital Platform Workers in Vietnam

Author(s): Thuy Dung Do, Thi Huong Mai


The COVID-19 pandemic exposes risk and inequities for workers, especially those working on digital platforms. Accordingly, the challenges for background employees relate to working conditions, job regularity, and income. In addition, the fact that algorithms are increasingly replacing humans in allocating and evaluating work, managing, and monitoring workers has left workers' rights unprotected. Meanwhile, the lack of access to social protection, freedom of association, and the right to collective bargaining has made this group of workers vulnerable in the current context (Behrendt et al., 2019) [4]. Social security agencies in many countries are making efforts to expand social insurance coverage for this group of people. While policies on compulsory obligations and benefits are being reviewed and finalized, in the current context, participating in voluntary social insurance is a viable option for employees working on digital platforms. Accordingly, this study aims to investigate the attitudes of these subjects towards participating in voluntary social insurance in the current context in Vietnam.
