Guidelines on the employment of domestic workers

Ethical guidelines on the employment of domestic workers

The Ethical Guidelines consolidate the position of the Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) regarding the employment of domestic workers, based on the round table discussions in March 2006 as well as other relevant positions of the organization.

The Guidelines established the issues of domestic workers as requiring a tripartite approach, with local government and civil society playing a critical role, and the responsibility to promote and protect the rights of domestic workers incumbent not only on the domestic workers, but as well on the employers.
