Useful Tips For Employer

  • Wages – You can either pay your helper by cash or credit her wages into her bank account. To avoid any misunderstanding, this should be properly documented and if a bank account is used, you should let her keep the account book. If by mutual agreement you are to keep the account book, she must be given access to check that payments are credited regularly.
  • Bonuses – Where appropriate, this should be considered because it acts as a good motivator. This could be in the form of an annual bonus or an end of contract term gratuity. Such incentives may result in a helper who would serve out her contract diligently and effectively.
  • Medical care – As an employer, you are responsible for the medical benefits of your helper. Should she require medical treatment, including hospitalization, you are required to bear the full cost of medical care.
  • Accommodation – Whenever possible, your helper should be given a separate room of her own. In the event that this is unavailable in your home, you should respect the need of your helper’s privacy and ensure that sufficient private space for rest is provided. Some examples of improper accommodation include making the helper sleep on the corridor or living room or sharing a room with a male adult.
  • Rest – A well-rested helper is more productive and better adjusted. Hence, you should ensure that your helper has sufficient rest, especially during the night and sufficient off days, which is mutually agreed upon between you and your helper.
