Need urgent help and advice.....
My indo maid who is on her second contract with me, threatened me wirh my resignation jusr now after i reprimanded her for some simple things which i been remindung her about for ages.....my tone was harsh as i really maxed out my patience over the years..

Can anyone tell me what is the best way to send her back? Any thing or sequencethay i need to take note of?
Her bad habit of didplaying superiority and refysal to admit mistakes nor habit of disrespect really puts me off......... :imdrowning: :?: :?:

book air ticket on the day itself then tell her let her pack under your watchful eye and cancel her work permit the day before shes due to go and then tell her if you dont go and want to stay you can be arrested as now you got no more work permit must go back

Get an agent to assist in cancellation of the work permit. Some maid agencies also have the service of transporting maids to the airport.

Ok, thanks all for theprompt advise, will chwck the cost of cancellation with previpus agent....hopefully not too expensive. Seems most important is wp cancelation, any udea about need for official notice of serving? Eg tiday she told me to just sebd hwr back come dec, if her contract only says need to serve each othet two weeks nitice, i can actually get her home today plus 2 weejs time without need to compwnsate her exyra but obnly the 2 weeks plus salary without breaking my side of contract responaibilities?
Do i need to get her to sign any acknowlegement leyter that she has been let go according to terms, just worrued that she may turn ard and say i dud nit pay her her due of two weeks notice!

You can cancel the work permit yourself online. It's very easy.

If the contract states two weeks notice then you are correct to say that you can just pay her for the two weeks and send her home.

When trust is broken, it is time to let go. Sent her off soon before she give u or yr child special in yr food etc. After 2 yrs, they are usually exhausted and a long break.
