About the Board

The Domestic Workers Standards Board provides a place for domestic workers, employers, private households, worker organizations, and the public to consider and suggest ways to improve the working conditions of domestic workers.

The Board makes these suggestions to the Office of Labor Standards, Mayor, and City Council.  Examples may include new laws or programs, and changes to the City's outreach and enforcement efforts.   


Who We Are

In 2019, the Board consists of nine members who reflect the domestic work industry and who have a demonstrated interest in improving domestic work industry standards. The Mayor and City Council each appoint four members and the Board appoints one member.  In 2020, the Board will increase to 13 members. The initial nine members serve for two or three-year terms. Future members will serve three-year terms.
