Protections for Paid In-Home/Domestic Workers: A Country-Specific Template

This is the second working paper in a series on care work and the COVID-19 pandemic sponsored by the Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP), with NSF as the funder of the U.S. component. The report coordinates and organizes previous research to build an agenda for analyzing protections for paid domestic workers in each country and in cross-national and transregional comparison of our six country cases. We chose to focus on the in-home care sector because care work in private homes, outside of public view and isolated from other workers, leaves workers in “situations of vulnerability” (Walby and Shire 2024) subject to abuse and less covered by social protections.
