Fair Care Pledge: Improving Jobs for Domestic Workers

Commitment by

Care.com, Inc., National Domestic Workers Alliance

In 2015, Care.com and the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) committed to raise the job quality of domestic care workers by implementing the Fair Care Pledge, which requires employers of housecleaners, nannies, and home attendants who take the Pledge to commit to three job quality standards: fair pay, paid time off, and clear expectations. The partners will generate marketing materials, social media campaigns, online resources, and other tools to build awareness and encourage adoption of the Pledge among employers and to help domestic workers leverage the Pledge to initiate conversations about job quality in a way that is credible and non-threatening. Through this Pledge, Care.com and NDWA strive to increase the number of domestic care employers who choose to meet these job quality standards.
