Transitioning to higher rates of informal labour may require new planning to prepare future generations (Sumberg, Fox, Flynn, Mader, & Oosterom, 2020).  Sumberg et al. (2020) suggest a transformation into the gig economy should include the ability for engagement among employees, employers, and unions and accountability for treatment of employees.  Sumberg et al. (2019) supports a long term commitment to formal employment and social protections for the unemployed to address labour market planning.  Zemtsov (2020) lists three approaches for evaluating the automation of employment, professional group analysis, work task analysis, and surveys.  Tamers et al. (2020) encourage research and recommendations for improving safety in changing work environments.
