Group calls for laws to protect home help

DOMESTIC workers all too often face low pay and poor working conditions, particularly when they travel abroad for employment, officials said during the first day of a two-day conference hosted by the NGO Legal Support for Children and Women (LSCW).

LSCW Programme Manager Mon Sok Cha said the purpose of the conference was to press the government to draft laws that would protect domestic workers from exploitation.

"Right now there are no laws and regulations that can protect them," he said. "Their work hours and duties are not clearly stated, and their wages are lower than they should be."
