The Domestic Workers Bill of Rights was passed in 2010. Under this law domestic workers must be paid at least the New York State minimum wage. Domestic workers must also be paid one and a half times their regular hourly rate after forty hours of work in a calendar week, or after forty-four hours if the employee lives in the home. In addition, workers must be provided with one 24 hour rest day per week, and at least three paid days off after the first year of employment.
