Planet Labor, 21 January 2019, n°11299 -

The National Domestic Workers Alliance, which organizes and advocates for domestic workers has recently launched a portable benefits tool called Alia that can enable domestic cleaning staff to access social protection benefits. Employers can voluntarily contribute at least $5 per month. Workers can redeem paid time off, at $120 per day. Alia also enables employers to subscribe to life assurance, and disability and serious illness cover for their staff.
