Domestic Labour Rights Belongs to her if Domestic Labour belongs to her-Kind: A Situational Analysis of the Domestic Workers in West Bengal
Domestic Labour in India has not been recognised as a form of work and has neither been considered under
Labour laws. The work involving care in the private sphere of home has been feminized . Thus female domestic workers
face an array of problems due to non-recognition as labour.The Paper expounds on the situation of domestic workers and
their condition of work in West Bengal and thus suggests why we need National and not state wise legislations for the
welfare of domestic workers and that India needs to urgently ratify the 189th Convention of ILO.
