Report IV(1): Decent work for domestic workers

The Governing Body has placed an item on decent work for domestic workers on the agenda of the 99th Session of the International Labour Conference (ILC) of 2010 with a view to the setting of labour standards. This report, which provides information from across the world on the law and practice concerning domestic workers, is intended to serve as the basis for the ILC discussion. The report, accompanied by a questionnaire, was communicated to the governments of the member States of the ILO which were invited to send their replies to the Office no later than 30 August 2009.
