Hi all, my maid is flying back hm in 2 days time but she just walked out because she got money problems. Now what should I do. Her problems become my problems. What are my liabilities?

Have you filed a police report?
Check if you have missing valuables.

Wah... so serious?
1. First, call the agent
2. Then, call the police
3. Check items at home.

Personally, I feel that you should timestamp your call to the authorities first. Then, check the items - then you are likely to be required to go down to the station to file a report (or visit by police if theres missing items?). By this time, you should have identified what's missing?

1)Did you buy insurance for her S$5000 bond? This is a big ticket item if she disappeared
2)Call the agent, she may have gone to her embassy and they will contact the agent.
3)If no news, file a police report and have her WP cancelled- do this only if you have purchased her S$5000 insurance or you will have to pay the bond upfront. Termination of WP will stop your liablility of paying her levy.
4)They are normally found, check with the agent and embassy. Good luck.
