The ILO’s work around fundamental principles and rights at work emphasizes the elimination of child labour, forced labour, discrimination, and the promotion of freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining. These efforts are crucial to establishing decent working conditions for domestic workers, as many are still excluded from these fundamental rights and high instances of child labour characterizes the sector. Reports on these issues reveal a need to take legislative and policy action to end child labour and to protect young workers in domestic work, monitor the extent of abuse and determine whether workers have been victims of forced labour or trafficking for labour exploitation.
