The high demand for domestic helps has prompted authorities to act fast in order to secure the rights of the employees. Laying down rules and regulations enables clients have a better understanding of what to do and what is expected of them. The setting up of the 外傭 (Foreign domestic helper hiring expenditure) aims to remove ambiguity revolving around the pay. This sets a clear picture of the salary scale that employers should use. This move aims to get the 菲傭 (Filipinomaid) a good salary. Many employers take advantage of the situation to pay them minimum wage.
Keep the interests of the employee first
The law states clearly that every 僱傭中心推介 (recommended employment center) should abide by the set rules to ensure that employees get the salary that is expected from the client. In order to curb any misunderstandings, it is wise that the company drafts an employment contract with the client stating the amount payable to the employee. This serves as a legally binding agreement signed in the presence of an advocate. In case of any pay challenge by the client, then the 僱傭公司 (Employment company) can institute legal charges to safeguard interests of the employee.
Create lasting friendships
Affecting the labor laws helps in reducing crimes resulting from angry helps who turn rogue due to mistreatment by their employers and payment of very low salaries. This results to stealing household items or even kidnap of children for ransom. A reasonable pay allows 康樂居 (HL&C Employment Agency Ltd.) to give out the best employees to clients with the aim of a long lasting relationship free of any incidences or accidents in the home due to pay issues. Most clients can enjoy quality service and a lasting friendship with the domestic help without any confrontations.
