Domestic Workers TrainingOn Saturday, June 13, 2009, in a grade school auditorium in San Francisco, over 100 Bay Area house cleaners, nannies, and caregivers met to help set priorities for possible legislation to ensure greater rights and better treatment for these often forgotten workers.

Domestic workers themselves have driven the campaign in California, assisted by attorneys from legal aid organizations, including Worksafe. The workers hope to achieve the same rights for domestic workers that others take for granted, including the right to overtime, paid vacation and sick days, workers’ compensation, and Cal/OSHA coverage.
