The handbook is a content of brief information on Uganda’s domestic workers rights, legislation, and Convention 189. It provides basic knowledge to domestic workers and employers on how to relate in the household as a place of work.
Domestic workers handbook is intended to raise awareness of domestic workers, employers, the community, law enforcement agencies and legislators on the rights and significance in society. This book shall further enlighten domestic workers and the stakeholders on how to control violence and harassment against domestic workers whilst in employment.
There is a wrong perception that domestic workers in Uganda do not have rights because they are not mentioned in the Law and cannot organize in a trade union.
