Caritas: Protect domestic workers

May 31, 2011

Caritas Internationalis, the confederation of Catholic relief and development agencies, is calling upon the International Labor Conference to adopt measures that protect domestic workers, especially migrants. The conference is the annual meeting of the delegations of the International Labor Organization’s member states.

“We don’t have proper laws to protect domestic workers,” said Martina Liebsch, the confederation’s director of advocacy. “The International Labor Conference is an important step for developing labor standards for domestic workers. Protecting vulnerable people like domestic workers and especially migrant ones is a moral duty.”
