Through International Labour Organization’s indicators of forced labour, author identifies some forms of violence towards female domestic workers in Ho Chi Minh City nowadays. There are different types of domestic work, but within the scope of research paper, the author will focus on two main groups of female domestic workers, i.e. domestic workers in private households and patient caretakers. They represent two different working environments, but have one thing in common, which is the higher frequency of contact with their employers compared to the other groups. The main method used in this study was qualitative research and the data were collected via semi-structured interviews with a snowball sample. Nineteen female domestic workers were invited to join in the interview with their voluntary participation. The results show that there are some differences in the forms of violence and forced labor between the two groups, especially, the group of patient caretakers undergoing more experiences of sexual violence and abuse than the other. On the contrary, the group of domestic workers in private households suffer from discrimination on the grounds of food, as well as accommodation, economic exploitation and travel restrictions more regularly. Moreover, a poor working environment and long working hours which are also becoming more and more common in hospitals in the present have a bad influence on patient caretakers’ health.
