Labor Laws Affecting Private Household Workers.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
Wages and working conditions for private household workers have not kept pace with other occupations, partly because of lack of coverage by labor laws. This pamphlet describes the protection available to domestics under both federal and state laws. Not only wages and hours, but also coverage by Unemployment Compensation, Workmen's Compensation, and Social Security are discussed. This paper is a revision of MP 000 543. (BH)
