Labor Issues: Ethical Practices for Domestic Workers

A Social Action Guide to Ensure Ethical Practicing in Employing Domestic Workers

Domestic workers are indispensable to the American economy. America's families - including members of Reform congregations - depend on services provided by cleaning personnel, nannies, yard workers, and elder care workers. Domestic workers are common in American society.

Yet, there are few laws governing their treatment and limited resources to assist families wrestling with the ethical issues that frequently arise around the employment of these workers. Jewish tradition and values can provide that ethical foundation and guidance. Download our newest issue packet and find out what you and your congregation can do to learn about and assist domestic workers.
