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.

An explanation of the conditions that need to be met for a threshold to be achieved can be found here.

Workers earn above the minimum hourly wage in South Africa after taking into account costs.

There is a clear process of communication through which workers can raise issues with the platform support team.


There is informed consent for the collection of data, and the data collected is minimised.

Fairwork data is collected through desk research, data supplied by platforms, and interviews with platform workers. In this case, our minimum threshold of worker interviews was not met. We invite any workers on this platform to get in touch or submit evidence about any of this platform’s scores.
