Decent Work for Domestic Workers

Every household that employs Domestic Workers must fully understand the rights of Domestic Workers, be a responsible employer and respect Domestic Worker's rights. This booklet provides information to enable the public make better informed decisions related to the employment conditions of the Domestic Workers they employ. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security (MLSS), National Pension Scheme Authority (NAPSA), Workers Compensation Fund Control Board (WCFCB), Zambia Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU), The Unions of Domestic Workers, the Association of Employers of Domestic Workers, with support from the International Labour Organization (ILO) and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), have taken lead in this agenda, and embarked on a robust campaign to sensitize the general public on the rights of Domestic Workers and the obligations of employers of Domestic Workers. This is in line with the Government's desire not to leave any one behind, and the ILO convention 189 and recommendation 201.
