TECHNICAL COOPERATION PROJECT. The work of caring and cleaning in the employer’s home for pay, one of the most important occupations for millions of women around the world, is precarious, low-paid, and unprotected, as it is often excluded totally or in part from the scope of labour law. If decent work is to become a reality for these workers, national laws and enforcement mechanisms must identify and address the specific characteristics of domestic work. In 2011, the ILO is expected to adopt new, specific international labour standards on domestic work.
