We are on a mission to make sure that if you work, you deserve benefits such as paid time off and insurance. We started with house cleaners because they work for multiple employers, making no one responsible for their benefits. Today, we welcome all domestic workers (house cleaners, nannies, and care givers) to use our platform. Alia makes benefits easy for domestic workers.
