Q1.    

If the maid has children, does she know how to take care of newborn baby or children?

A:  

No. Because most of them are come from countryside, so they take care of the baby/ children are different from HK. Therefore you should find a maid who has work in oversea eg. Singapore, Taiwan or HK and have experience in taking care of baby or children. (The employer please notice that some of maids declare that they have experience but actually look after newborn baby or the child by the elderly woman either the female employer)

 

Q2.    

If the maid is married whether can mature and reliable?

A:  

Mature and reliable is depend on their personality, is not depend on their Martial status and age.

 

Q3.     Can employ a local maid who is terminated by her employer?
A:  

Under the existing Immigration policy, FDHs whose contracts are terminated prematurely are required to return to their place of origin where they may submit a fresh application for entry to HK if they so wish. Permission to change employment in HK is given only in exceptional circumstances. These include, for example, cases where the employers are unable to continue with the contracts because of migration, death or financial reasons or there is evidence that the FDHs have been abused or exploited.

FAQ

 

 

Q1.           Can an employer agree with the FDH to pay lesser amount of wages than the minimum allowable wage (MAW)? What is the prevailing MAW?
A:

No, an employer cannot agree with the helper to pay lesser amount of wages than the minimum allowable wage. Approval for the importation of FDH is based on facts submitted to the Director of Immigration, whereby the employer has agreed to pay not less than the minimum allowable wage. An employer who underpays wages as stated in the standard employment contract is liable, upon conviction, to a maximum fine of HK$350,000 and three years’ imprisonment. The employer would also be committing serious offences of making false representation to an Immigration Officer and conspiracy to defraud.

The MAW is subject to regular review. For standard employment contracts, the applicable MAW is HK$4,110 per month.

 

Q2.           How long does the employment contract ? Can an employer terminate his helper's contract before it expires?
