Tanzania: How to count working time of domestic workers
Research reports, working paper
Domestic work is not considered as work generally and hence most domestic workers in particularly the live-in domestic workers find their tasks never end. In April, together with the Conservation, Hotels, Domestic, Social Services and Consultancy Workers Union (CHODAWU) in Tanzania and the ILO, IDWN conducted a study on the working time of domestic workers.
We recorded the working time of 20 live-in domestic workers using a time recording form we developed at the onset. With increased awareness and a proper tool, we hope that in the near future all domestic workers and their employers will be able to properly record the working time of domestic workers and understand it better.
