The ILO Convention 189 concerning decent work for domestic workers is founded on the fundamental premise that domestic workers are neither "servants" nor "members of the family" nor second-class workers. This instrument provides the basis for ensuring that under the law domestic workers have the respect and rights that workers in the formal economy have long fought for and acquired. Convention 189 guarantees minimum labour protection to domestic workers on par with other categories of workers. Domestic workers are entitled to decent work as are all workers.
