One Response to “Daily SG: 8 Apr 2011”


    I was browsing the MOM website and i could see that MOM is really taking care of all the foreign workers in singapore BUT how about the employers?

    Will MOM give the same treatment to the employers??
    I’m forwarding this question because i’m an employer too and having a very difficult time with my domestic worker. Seem that they are now getting “big headed” in singapore. Why i said this is because i’m experiencing it myself. My current maid has been working with me for only 4mths and kept on asking me to send her back as she dont feel good working here. So called she dont have much work at my house and she felt lonely as i only have 1 child to take care of. (dosent make sense right???)

    I’ve spent almost 3k on her to come to singapore via the maid agency and insured her with the best insurance coverage, aft 4mths , she wants to go back. If i were to get a replacement for her, i have to spent some more cash on the insurance for the new maid, BUT theres no confirmation if the new maid could work with me for 2yrs. And i have to wait more than 2mths before the new maid could come in singapore. In the 2mths who is going to take care of my child and do the housework?

    I believe i’m not the only employer facing this issue with “big headed” maids in singapore. MOM should come out with new rule for both employers and worker. IF the employer wants to send the foreign worker back, the employer should bear all the costs. BUT IF the maid herself wants to go back before the contract ends (2yrs), the maid should refund all the costs to the employers.

    I really want to know what the MOM inform the maids when they first come to singapore & what are the MOM rules for them before they could come to singapore.

    After reading my email, I hope MOM understand how upset all employers & myself felt having such “big headed” maids. I am in a very very difficult situation now and hope that MOM could help me.
