## Abstract
Estimates suggest that 6-12% of European workers are engaged in crowdwork (CW) (Pesole, Urzí Brancati, Fernández-Macías, Biagi, & González Vázquez, 2018; Serfling, 2019), but despite the relevant labor market position, little is known about the working conditions for the crowdworker (Schulte, Schlicher, & Maier, 2020), especially about the effect on health (Pesole et al., 2018). There is reason to assume that participation in CW can have negative effects: their status as employees or self-employed remains unclear, compensation is often low and work can be done as a part-time job alongside regular or full-time employment. Based on these assumptions, CW can be counted among the group of atypical work for which it is known that they can have negative effects on the health of the persons performing them (Quinlan, Mayhew, & Bohle, 2001).
The present empirical study fills existing research gaps by making three contributions: a) we draw a comparison to other forms of atypical work (e.g. telework and short-term contracts) and derive thereof the risks of CW, b) an analysis of the empirical data on N=748 German crowdworker shows health impacts of CW, and c) from the empirical analyses we derive recommendations for the design of CW and future research.
