PEREZ PADRON, Diana. Domestic work and its regulation in latin america. A comparative study. Rev. latinoam. derecho soc [online]. 2020, n.31, pp.95-119.  Epub 01-Nov-2021. ISSN 2448-7899.

Domestic or household work has been considered as an activity that does not report a value to the economy of the countries. The environment of discrimination in which people who carry out this activity are immersed has resulted in a situation of vulnerability that mainly affects women, coupled with the problems faced by this labor sector in various countries as there is no legal framework nor with comprehensive public policies that propitiate, in terms used by the ILO, decent or decent work.

This study aims to provide information to publicize the complex legal situation in which this group of workers develops, this, based on an analysis that will be based on a comparative method of various national laws that regulate domestic work or Home in Latin America. Derived from this task, it seeks to expose the work and efforts of each country in the legislative field aimed at eliminating the barriers that prevent the formalization of labor relations, the exercise of human and labor rights, based on the premise that everything worker, regardless of the activity you do, must enjoy an environment without discrimination, with access to work and social security benefits.

Palabras llave : domestic work; labor rights; comparative law; recognition; decent work.
