‘Uphold rights of domestic workers’

UNB

Speakers at a conference in the capital on Saturday domestic workers' rights are being constantly violated in the country, reports UNB.

They spoke during a 'Domestic Workers' Conference' organised by Bangladesh Institute of Labour Studies (BILS) and Oxfam Bangladesh at Jatiya Press Club, said a press release.

The speakers also talked about the rising level of abuse against the workers, alongside incidents of death.

Although the government has declared the Domestic Workers' Protection and Welfare Policy 2015, they said it should be brought under the purview of the Labour Act 2006 to ensure their moral dignity and prevent further abuse.

The speakers also urged the government to ratify the ILO Convention 189.

Human rights activist advocate Sultana Kamal was the conference's chief guest.
