National Domestic Workers Bill of Rights

The National Domestic Workers Bill of Rights is a groundbreaking national legislation to create strong rights and workplace protections for domestic workers across the country. The bill, co-sponsored by Senators Kristen Gillibrand and Ben Ray Luján and Representative Pramila Jayapal, will create a national standard that provides the respect, dignity, and recognition that all domestic workers deserve.

The Bill covers three major gaps in protecting domestic workers in the workplace by:

  • Including domestic workers in common workplace protections like paid overtime, paid sick days, safe and healthy working conditions, meal & rest breaks, and freedom from sexual harassment
  • Creating new protections to address the unique challenges of domestic work: written agreements, fair scheduling, a standards board and support for survivors of sexual harassment
  • Ensuring that rights aren’t just on paper, but that they can be enforced and implemented: Know-your-rights information, mechanisms against retaliation
