Domestic workers in Bangladesh carry the heavy cost of inadequate investment in the provision of social protection and services and survey findings show that the majority of domestic workers earn a wage that is insufficient to cover their basic needs. This policy brief makes recommendations for policymakers and scheme administrators, trade unions, and grassroots organizations and coalitions to extend social protection to this vulnerable group of workers.

This brief is part of the WIEGO Publication Series and was funded by the Open Society Foundation's  Women's Rights Programme.
