Surely you sound like coming from an agency.importantmum2012 wrote:All house owners are to pay CPF to their part-time 'maids'/cleaners earning > $50 a month if the cleaner is directly under the house owner.
Directly meaning what?
If the cleaner is under a cleaning agency, the agency has to make sure CPF contributions are made. And the maximum fine for using illegal moonlighting maids from Myanmar, Phillipinines, Indonesia or China (pei du mama) is S$80,000 for the offending cleaning 'agency' and up to S$15,000 for the house owner. MOM is intensifying their efforts from Nov 2012 onwards on offending parties deploying such illegal 'maids'. You have been forewarned. Do you wish to be fined up to S$15,000, appear on the front pages of newspapers etc just for paying $10/hr or rather pay more at up to $20/hr, obey the Singapore law and have a good night sleep? It's a literal hell for anyone to be summoned to MOM office for interrogation by MOM investigation officers.
