On 1 September 2002, a new sectoral determination was issued by the Minister of Labour to cover all domestic workers. For the first time, minimum wages have been introduced into this sector, which is defined to include gardeners, child minders and drivers in private households. Every employer of a domestic worker must comply with the minimum conditions established by the sectoral determination, and keep proper records of wages paid and other employment details.;This title sets out fully, authoritatively and in plain language what the laws are pertaining to the employment of domestic or private workers. It forms a useful source of reference for both employers and workers in the domestic service sector, to enable them to understand their respective rights and obligations. The title includes a sample contract, the Sectoral Determination (which every employer is by law required to have on the premises and available to employees); Union and Department of Labour contact addresses; and other essential information for every household.
