Migrant Domestic Workers In Action: A Global Action Programme On Migrant Domestic Workers And Their Families
PDF File Size: 291 KB | Download   
Domestic workers usually do not enjoy the same level of protection as other workers. They are excluded from national legal protection in more than half of the world, and find themselves working in a sector that historically has not received equal respect and value. Domestic workers frequently work for excessively long hours with little pay and virtually no access to social protection. Many are vulnerable to sexual and gender-based violence. Due to the social, cultural and physical isolation they often work and live in, they face specific challenges in the exercise of their social, economic and cultural rights. Migrant domestic workers are disproportionately exposed to abuse compared to nationals in the same sector due to a series of intersecting factors, including dependence on recruitment agencies, lack of reliable information on migration procedures, limited freedom to change employers, contract substitution, the retention of travel and identity documents by others, and lack of access to justice and effective redress mechanisms. The vulnerability of domestic workers is exacerbated when they are in an irregular migration situation.
