In 2009, 791(1) individuals were granted ILR as Overseas Domestic Workers in a Private Household.
In June 2011, the Government launched a consultation into, “Employment-Related Settlement, Tier 5 and Overseas Domestic Workers” This consultation document proposes changes to the settlement rights of those coming to the UK to work as well as changes to Tier 5 of the points-based system and the rules for overseas domestic workers.
Analysis to support the consultation outcome is due to be published in the near future.
