This law secures more protection for the rights of the domestic helpers in Jordan. It includes them under the umbrella of the labor law. According to article three of this new law from now on, domestic workers and agricultural workers are covered by the provisions of the labor law. Nevertheless paragraph B of the same Article stipulates that a by-law (by-laws in Jordan are issued by the executive and by the legislature) will be issued related to the work contracts of the two categories of workers.
