Foreign Workers: Domestic Service

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many employers of migrant domestic workers were (a) prosecuted for and (b) convicted of psychological abuse, physical abuse or sexual abuse of their employees in each of the last three years. (197984)

Information on the number of employers of migrant domestic workers who have been (a) prosecuted and (b) convicted for psychological abuse, physical abuse or sexual abuse of their employees is not held centrally.

The Court Proceedings Database held by the Ministry of Justice does not separately identify either the category of defendant (i.e. employer etc.) the type of victim (i.e. migrant domestic worker), or the type of abuse.
