Ending Live-in Care Workers’ Labour Exploitation in the European Union

Lessons from Germany

This study sheds light on the working and living conditions of so-called live-in care workers in Germany. Live-ins are usually female migrant workers who provide domestic and care work for elderly people in their private homes. They often complement the work of certified nursing care staff and have become an integral part of the care landscape in the EU. The case of Germany shows that, this type of work is heavily outsourced to women from Central and Eastern European countries though official figures are limited.
