If I am correct then on what basis are MOM inspecting ? (This assumes of course that MOM are)
Presumably for such a trivial offence (assumption of course that crime has been committed) a Warrant would never be issued. Therefore the Employer can refuse MOM entry thus preventing evidence/proof. Correct?
On a practical note, the thorny matter of blackmail. If the relationship turns sour then could the FDW have any "hold" on the Employer?
See, the issue is .. My take is .. why even let room for complications, drama, nonsense .. or HK style demand for residence / PR ?
And in the past, before MOM was enforcing this rule more strictly, a few maids did get married to their employer and the MOM people were in Catch-22 - allow the maid to get residency, then opens the flood gates, don't allow, the 'poor' Singaporean man (assuming it was a Singaporean .. ) is being subject to undue stress by separating him from his wife ..
On what basis they enter ? as I said, when you sign on some forms, maybe somewhere you gave away your right to privacy ..
SMS would agree on that part ..
