Agreement on Domestic Worker Recruitment between Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.

Date Adopted / Created / Concluded

Saudi Arabia signed an agreement with the Philippines regarding labour migration, especially in regards to standard employment contracts for domestic workers, payment of their wages directly into bank accounts and establishing mechanisms for 24-hour assistance. The agreement was signed in 2013, ratified in 2014, and entered into force on 7 May 2015. This agreement was seen as a significant milestone in the field of labor cooperation and in the protection and promotion of the rights of Household Service Workers, especially because this was the first agreement on domestic worker recruitment to be concluded in the region. In fact, this agreemnt has been used as a template in negotiating similar agreements with GCC countries.
