Postby miu0075 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 2:12 pm

My maid complaints that she do not wants to work with a house that got old folks, and ask to immediate back to agent. Now at home no maid, my mum alone at home when girls go to school. I am so worry, my mum is 60+ yrs old, still fit but no matter what old folk alone at home is at risk.

Anyone have maid to transfer, I am living at HDB 5 rooms, 2 adult, one grandma and 2 girls ( 12 and 14 yrs old).

I would suggest that you take a trip down to Far East Shopping Centre on Sunday and just do the rounds of the agencies. All the transfer maids will be there for interview and you will probably be able to find one in one day. You must expect to have to give all Sundays off. Avoid those agencies with a lot of expats as the maids there will expect higher salaries. ADP is one of those.

Refer to your contract with the agency, or ask the agency.

I think (but not 100% sure, cos of so many changes nowadays) that if you return the maid to the agent and give them a couple of weeks to transfer her to a new employer, you should be able to get the balance back.
But best is to refer to your contract with the agency, or ask them directly.
