I had a maid, and I was advised by agency to hold the passport and give a copy to her .. and when she asks me whether I trust her or not, dumb me was wondering why I was being a 'slave master' and I forgot she was holding the original of the Work Pass, which is sufficient for any check in Singapore .. and gave her the passport ..Jobo wrote:Wow. She has some nerve wanting to see her husband after she already sees him once a month! I hope she does run away with her passport since you seem like a total d-bag.
Do I assume that you have a maid ?? And you are one of those who encourage maids to Boyfriends ?? No kidding - i heard that from a British lady, who said she told her maid to get BF, so the maid will not be lonely .. now, this lady doesn't care that the maid has a family back home and 9 out of 10 boyfriends are there to suck money out of the maids, and by following the rule of making life comfortable for a maid, you are indirectly or directly destroying her, and I did counselling and came across enough maids who ended up working in bars and doing other monkey work to cover the money they send back home, as their salary virtually is given to the BF.Jobo wrote:Well I. Your situation it definitely made sense to get rid of her since you should never have someone in your home you don't trust, but I still think it's wrong to hold someone's passport. If you're holding it because you don't trust them, maybe they shouldn't be in your home.
Not to get into a shooting match, but did you forget that JB IS A FOREIGN COUNTRY ?? ?AND FROM JB - and with an Asean Passport - (assuming she is from ASEAN) she can go anywhere, and get into any trouble .. and legally, you are as good as a legal guardian and anything that happens to the maid is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY got it ??JR8 wrote:All respect to your experience of counseling maids, but is holding their passports and so say denying them the option to go to JB on their day off if they so wished legal?
I don't think what an agency says matters, what does the law say?
