This article aims to analyze the changes in Labor in terms of it’s flexibility of relations, technology and emerging occupations from new Technologies of Information and Communication (TICs). Among the analyzed activities are the Software developers, hardware assemblers in computing factories, outsourced call center attendants and digital platform workers. One of the issues analyzed, although preliminarily, is in wich measure the change in Labor Law, ocurred in 2017 in Brazil, favored the “Uberization”of Work. By analizing these activities and it’s kinds of contract, we concluded that precariousness is an element of the aforementioned occupations, which were originated in a context of flexibility and technological innovations, made possible by the Internet, mixing time and space, shuffling issues that are part of the own value of labor, material and imaterial and in the own concept of Enterprise. One of the most contradictory facets of the so called flexible capitalisme consists in the transfer of risk of economic activity to the workers.
