German Crowdsourcing Ombuds Publishes First Annual Report

The Ombuds Office of the Code of Conduct for Paid Crowdsourcing reported the results of its work from November 2017 through December 2018. Five Ombuds Office panelists heard from 31 project workers or volunteers working for one of eight different German internet companies that rely on crowdsourcing. The panelists include a judge, two representatives from signatory companies, a workers' union representative, and a crowdsource worker. In 20 of the 31 cases, the Ombuds were able to bring the matters to resolution through mediation and 3 were still pending. (Ombudsstelle für Crowdsourcing 2019 Report.)
