My helper will be going back to Indo for a month in June at the end of her contract. She will come back in August and we renew her contract for another 2 years.
1. I will pay for her airticket. But do I need to pay for her salary in July (when she is back home?)
2. Am I supposed to pay her any additional bonus (if I pay her salary in July when she is not around)? What's the normal practice? What is the usual market rate for bonus?
3. Her current salary is $500. She has been with us for 4 years. I know I must raise her. Is $550 considered a market rate for a 4-year (+another 2 years with another house) maid?
Thanks for whoever can answer my questions.
Home leave and bonus???
With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.
