KASAMBAHAY LAW PDF

Is RA a mere consolidation of the provisions in other laws for the protection of domestic workers? Or does the new law provide more protection for a kasambahay? While considering the pertinent provisions in the Civil Code and the Labor Code, RA grants additional significant rights and benefits to the kasambahay. These are the 13th month pay, Pag-Ibig membership and additional pay for work beyond the agreed hours of work, not to mention the provisions which categorically declare as unlawful a number of prohibited acts.

Government monitors such as those City Hall assigns to business and commercial establishments are not usually present. And in many cases, neighbors who witness abusive behavior refuse to intervene. Why create enemies across the fence, they ask. Hence, the threat of abuse lingers constantly and committing one is easy. The labor group asking for a higher raise for kasambahay has a point. The actual value of the wages the kasambahay remits to folks back home has significantly diminished in the last five years.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III summed it up nicely when he said families employ kasambahay because they can afford to do so. Kasambahay are foremost a necessity, especially for urban dwellers.
