The incidence of Child Domestic Labour is quite significant in Bangladesh as in many other developing countries. Historically more girls are employed in domestic service. Because of its nature and circumstances, CDL is susceptible to becoming a worst form of child labour. Many children in domestic labour are very young, and also the tasks they perform are difficult to monitor or regulate. Once a child is inside an employer’s home, s/he is effectively hidden from view. As a result, employers of children in domestic service have total control over the latter’s lives. This is a high-risk situation for the child. Violence and abuse of many different kinds can take place behind closed doors, unnoticed by the outside world.
