for the maid leaving the next employer generally has to pay, unless you are 'kind' or 'generous'NU wrote:I wonder if you could offer me some advice.
We got our maid through an agency. One night she thought we would be out late (which we weren't) and we found her creeping back into the house at 1am.
We obviously wanted to change her for a different maid which the agency agreed on.
I gave the maid 30 days notice as stipulated in the contract. My maid agency says I have to pay her transfer fee of $500. They also charged me agency fee and paperwork fee mounting to around $479 ( our maid had been with use 18 month).
I have chosen a new maid and now that maid contacted me asking whether I would pay her transfer fee. Our agency had told us that her current employer would pay her transfer fee.
All little confusing- so I contacted MOM who state that a transfer fee is mutually agreed therefore I don't have to pay anything.
Another agency I contacted said they expect the maids themselves to pay the transfer fee.
My question is do I need to pay a transfer fee? and also I feel a bit disgruntled paying for a maid who did wrongdoing!!
Please help? the internet seems to be full: of conflicting advice!!
