Domestic workers technical meeting

Domestic Workers Technical Working Group Meeting

The tripartite-plus Philippine Technical Working Group on Decent Work for Domestic Workers (Domestic Work TWG) held a meeting to discuss and finalize the preparations for the annual commemoration of the National Domestic Workers’ Day (Araw ng Kasambahay) in the Philippines.

The National Domestic Workers' Day celebrates the third anniversary of the enactment of the Republic Act 10361 Batas Kasambahay, which is considered to be a landmark piece of labour and social legislation that extends labour rights, benefits and protection to an estimated 1.9 million domestic workers in the Philippines.
