BROOKLYN - With a new law promising protections for domestic caregivers, many nannies say they feel more secure in the job that they love.

The Domestic Workers Bill of Rights guarantees basic rights and protections to domestic workers.  It is considered a milestone for an industry that did not have any standards on the law books for 75 years.

The bill provides guarantees to overtime pay after 40 hours of work in a week, one day off per week, three paid days off per year and temporary disability benefits for part-time and full-time employees.

Domestic workers who fought for the bill say the signing last summer was a reflection of their push for change. They say they are relieved that a law exists to protect their rights as workers.
