    Jakarta-Indonesia, 12 June 2015

    Domestic workers represent the single largest group of female salaried workers contributing to the households of others in their own country or abroad. Despite of the importance of the role of domestic workers, domestic work is still not recognized as work. Since their work is done in private households, which are not considered work places in many countries, their employment relationship is not addressed in national labour laws or other legislation, denying them recognition as workers entitled to labour protection.
