Chicago: As of Jan. 1, 2022, all house cleaners, nannies and caregivers–regardless of their immigration status–working in Chicago must be given written contracts that include the agreed-upon wage and work schedule information — and be written in the workers’ preferred language. NDWA affiliate ARISE Chicago was instrumental in this victory, which will help to protect the city’s 56,000 workers from wage theft and extra work outside the previously agreed upon scope.
