94% of Domestic Workers Lack Comprehensive Social Security: ILO Report

According to International Labour Organization (ILO)’s new report titled “Making the right to social security a reality for domestic workers: A global review of policy trends, statistics and extension strategies”, only 6% of domestic workers from across the globe are legally covered for all benefits under social insurance schemes.
Around 94% of domestic workers lack access to the full range of protections, covering medical care, sickness, unemployment, old age, employment injury, family, maternity, invalidity and survivors’ benefits.

  • The report highlights that around 50% of all domestic workers have no coverage at all, and the remaining half are legally covered by at least one benefit.

Key Points:
i.Since the majority of the domestic workers are employed informally, only one in 5 domestic workers are actually covered in practice.
ii.Despite their vital contribution to society, more than 75.6 million domestic workers across the globe face multiple barriers to enjoying legal coverage and effective access to social security.
iii.The report states that domestic workers are often excluded from the national social security legislation.
iv.Around 76.2% (57.7 million people) of domestic workers are women and the social protection gap leaves them vulnerable.
Note:
i.According to the report, 57.3% of domestic workers in Europe and Central Asia are legally covered for all benefits and around 10% of domestic workers in the Americas enjoy such rights and almost none are fully covered in the Arab States, Asia and the Pacific and Africa.
ii.These are regions that include countries where significant numbers of domestic workers are employed.
Recommendations:
The report offers the following recommendations to ensure that domestic workers have access to comprehensive social protection.

  • Ensure that domestic workers enjoy conditions at least as favourable as those existing for other workers.
  • Customize and simplify administrative procedures to ensure that legal coverage translates into coverage in practice.
  • Simplify and streamline registration and payment procedures and develop adequate financing mechanisms.
  • Design benefit systems suitable for the specificities of domestic work.
  • Promote inspection services, and complaint and appeal mechanisms to ensure compliance.
  • Create awareness about the rights and obligations of domestic workers
  • Promote a participatory and integrated policy approach.
