The Fairwork Scoring System entails that each Fairwork Principle is divided into two thresholds. Accordingly, for each Principle, the scoring system allows a first point to be awarded corresponding to the first threshold, and an additional second point to be awarded corresponding to the second threshold. The second point under each Principle can only be awarded if the first point for that Principle has been awarded.
An explanation of how we assess platforms against these principles and the information and evidence that we gather and analyse when we make our assessment can be found here.
The above scores should be read in conjunction with these explanatory notes.
Platforms are awarded a point where there is verifiable evidence to demonstrate that the platform has achieved the relevant threshold. A blank score therefore means that there was no verifiable evidence to award a point.
A platform can therefore receive a maximum Fairwork Score of ten points.
Fairwork scores are updated on a yearly basis.
