New York State made history in 2010 when it passed the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. It was the first law in the U.S. to lay out basic protections for domestic workers – protections which domestic workers had been previously denied under other landmark legislation like the National Labor Relations Act.

This issue of Making Policy Public explains who qualifies as a domestic worker (it includes more people than you might first think!) And it explains the rights that domestic workers have, both under the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, and other legislation. The unfolded poster side includes the rights in five languages  – English, Spanish, Hatian Kreyole, Nepali, and Tagalog.

This project was created through a collaboration of CUP, Domestic Workers United, and artist Damon Locks.
