2016 June 19

On June 19, the "MY FAIR HOME" campaign was officially launched by the FADWU and the HKCTU.

Employers of domestic workers shared their stories together with their workers. They talked about their perspective on building good employer-employee relationship. One of the keys they brought out was to know the needs of the workers and to respect them as human beings. They also considered that having a better regulation and legislation could provide a better protection for both parties.

 Researcher Jeczer Sernande from PLUHK said that having continuous research on illegal practice of employment agency is a way of fighting better situation for migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong.
