It is your responsibility to ensure that the FDW seduces its work in a safe manner. Their work practices must be consistent with the work practices approved in MOM`s training (e.g. B.dem employer orientation program) and in safety and training materials. If you are hiring or transferring an FDW for the first time, your employment agency must ensure that you and they sign a security agreement. Mom does, however, encourage you to sign an employment contract with your FDW to avoid any disputes. You and your FDW must also sign a security agreement before working for you. Your foreign domestic worker (FDW) might want to take a break to visit her family. They can benefit from a tax exemption for the period during which she left and postpone their medical examination by 6 months if necessary. When the employment relationship of your foreign domestic workers (FDW) ends, there are certain steps you need to complete before leaving for their home country. If you hire a foreign domestic worker from the Philippines, she and you must sign the standard employment contract established by the Embassy of the Philippines.
The contract provides for a minimum wage of $570 per month, an uninterrupted rest period of at least 8 hours per day and one day off per week. The employer must also agree to “treat the domestic worker fairly and humanely” and not to withhold or withhold the Filipino worker`s passport without consent. In addition, the employer must sign a commitment form, also provided by the Embassy of the Philippines, which states that he will cover the expenses of his Filipino servants. The employer must accept that the worker can communicate freely with her family and ensure that her family members treat the assistant with respect and diligence. In addition to the contract, the Philippine Embassy also requires employers to acquire a safety obligation (beyond that required by the Ministry of Labor). You must also make sure that the worker is a member of the Overseas Workers Welfare Association (OWWA) and that the maid has paid for Pag Ibig`s mandatory membership. To be able to work in Singapore, good Filipinos must have completed an approved training program. These are conditions for having the treaty verified and authenticated by the Embassy of the Philippines. In the absence of a verified standard contract, the worker cannot leave the Philippines or return to Singapore after a leave of absence. At all times, employers must be aware of their obligations and the rights of domestic helpers. Most of them are simple, but before hiring, read the conditions of the work permit carefully.
