The Domestic Worker Bill of Rights requires employers of domestic workers to provide their employees with a contract, paid time off, and other protections. Domestic workers include nannies, house cleaners, caregivers, and others who provide services in the home.
Employers must provide employees with a written contract that outlines the minimum terms specified in the law. The written contract must be provided in English and the preferred language of the employee. A Domestic Worker Bill of Rights contract template is provided below in English, Spanish, and French. Contact our office to request additional languages.
If you believe you have experienced a violation of this law, you can report a Domestic Worker Bill of Rights violation. If you would like to file an employment discrimination complaint against your employer, contact the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations by emailing PCHR@phila.gov or call (215) 686-4670.
