This study presents findings from a web-based survey conducted in Hong Kong SAR, China in November 2019. In the context of Hong Kong SAR, China, it is the first study of its kind to employ a quantitative method to assess current levels of understanding and attitudes of employers towards ethical recruitment and decent work principles, regarding the hiring of their MDWs in Hong Kong SAR, China; including insights and concrete measures that could be taken by employers and employment agencies to help to avoid even the inadvertent exploitation of MDWs. The findings of the study provide evidence of the need to further sensitize employers of MDWs to both recruitment as well as the vulnerabilities to exploitation that can arise for workers within each phase of recruitment and employment
