Tigo Piló, managing associate, was interviewed by Expresso in a sense of clarifying what can be legally in cause if Uber proceeds with the new business model that intermediates punctual work in “commodity”, making the hiring of cleaning services, security and little arranges and other occasional services available through their platform.

There’s no scheduled date for the start and the internationalization of Uber Works. For Tiago Piló, “the temporary work is a much-regulated activity in a national level, that supposes labor contract between the service provider and the TT company.” The lawyer has “several doubts that Uber will establish these links”, and explains that, to avoid legal impositions, Uber will have to aggregate a partner network that complies to these requisites.

The same happens with private security, “companies will have to be licensed to make the platform available for professionals, and that platform may be Uber”.
