Domestic care work around the world is predominantly carried out by women. Much of this work is low-paid and informal, with little or no provision for paid vacation time, sick leave or employee benefits, and often with no contributions into state social security and pension systems.
Symplifica has built a tech platform to help domestic workers and employers in Latin America to manage their payroll, benefits, social security, and legal status. It will reinforce a growing legal recognition by governments across the region of the labor rights of domestic workers, and strengthen worker protections across the sector.
In five years, we expect Symplifica to have formalized over 100,000 employment relationships in Colombia and Mexico.
