As it is well know now, that the situation of migrant domestic workers in Lebanon( i.e. the women who come from Africa and South, South East Asia to work in the homes of Lebanese employers) is not at its best. Many of these women face abuse of all forms, they are mistreated, deprived from their basic human and workers' rights by their Lebanese employer, and no labour law exists in order to organize their labour and give them rights.
At the beginning of the year the Ministry of Labour in Lebanon issued a decree placing a unified contract for these workers giving them some rights and improving their legal status, however the decree should be enforced and monitored. it is an improvement but it is not enough.
I am posting this document in order to contribute to spreading awareness on the situation of these workers.
