In the two years since the Philadelphia Domestic Workers Bill of Rights went into effect, our members have been hard at work educating and organizing other domestic workers to make sure the law they worked so hard to win is being enforced.
The Philadelphia Domestic Worker Bill of Rights guarantees several labor rights for the city’s 16,000 household employees. It is considered one of the strongest laws in the nation that protects domestic workers and makes Philadelphia the largest U.S. city to offer robust labor protections to household employees.
Thanks to your support, employers of domestic workers must now:
We want to send our continued thanks to the incredible domestic workers, organizers and supporters across the state that worked hard to get us to this moment.
The Pennsylvania NDWA Chapter has been organizing domestic workers since 2018. In that time, we’ve won the Philadelphia Domestic Workers Bill of Rights and the Philadelphia City Hall Domestic Workers Standards and Implementation Task Force. The Task Force is the only worker-specific task force of its kind in city government.
We are profoundly thankful for all of you, and can’t wait to see what we accomplish in the future.
