Abstract

Domestic work encompasses a series of activities such as cleaning, housekeeping, cooking, washing clothes and caring for children, elderly or disabled people and pets, among others. Although domestic workers may perform different types of activities, two features are common to all of them: the work is paid, and the work is done in a home other than that of the worker him/herself (ILO, 2011th; ILO, 2011ab). Because of these and other socio-economic characteristics, paid domestic workers are similar in a number of way, namely: i) predominance of female workers; ii) low wages; iii) the employer is an individual; iv) legislation does not follow the Consolidated Labour Laws (Consolidação das Leis do Trabalho ? CLT)?in fact, such labour rights are mentioned as exceptions in the Federal Constitution (Constituição Federal ? CF) itself; and v) there is a high degree of labour informality (ILO, 2011c; IBGE, 2012th). (?)
