This book unravels a landmark development, the passage of the Kasambahay Law, which law every Kasambahay and the employer should know by heart. It elevates the status of domestic helpers or servants to domestic workers.

The reactions to it vary. There is the immediate fear on the part of the mostly peaceful and law abiding employers. They wonder how they can provide the many legislated rights of the Kasambahay,for example, the right to privacy when many of them live in very limited space; to report and pay for contributions when they have very limited time and resources even for themselves. Specific acts which the law declares as unlawful or criminal are good deterrent against abuse, but will they not expose the law-abiding employers to false accusations ... and to imprisonment? What is the basis for retirement benefits when retirement laws expressly exclude domestic workers? Kasambahays themselves pose questions like that on the matters of the exclusions or inclusions of family drivers, the hours of work, overtime work/pay, permanency in employment. Where can they file their money claims now that this law points to DOLE Directors or Barangay, and not anymore to the Labor Arbiters of the National Labor Relations Commission?

In 2006, when I wrote the book “DH, The Philippine Law on Domestic Helpers including Family Drivers,” my message to the OFWs Domestic Helpers was to keep their heads high: they are citizens of the country which has for sometime already, laws for domestic helpers and their employers. The countries of many of their wealthy employers do not have such law. Now, this 2013 Kasambahay Law does more for all of them.
