The paper, comprised of 20 sets of recommendations, sought to ensure that they are incorporated into domestic as well as bilateral legislation between the sending and receiving countries. The recommendations range from- a month long training with follow-up examinations to original passport and other essential documents to be in the domestic worker’s possession. As an outcome, the recommendations played an important role for Ministry of Labour and Employment to come up with Domestic Worker Guideline 2073.
