You might be right. I went back to the agency and asked them to simply say 'hours and curfew' to be set by the employer.PNGMK wrote: You may be over thinking the hours bit. Go with what the agency recommends and do an informal modification with the FDW once she is on your premises.
Hassle is right.movingtospore wrote:Well, the thing is, you are liable to some degree if your maid decides to be very naughty in her time off and gets caught. You won't be criminally charged but you will be in for a whole pile of hassle. The lady you have in question doesn't sound like the type given her age and tenure with her other employer...but just be aware.
We too had a live-in nanny back in Canada and then moved here...and got a bit of a shock at our own naivete. I am not saying you should enforce rules per the agency but do be aware that the maids you get here are not the nannies (who are often university educated) who find their way to Canada and Europe. And some of younger ones get themselves (and their employers) into a lot of trouble. Our first maid started having all kinds of "boyfriends' who just happened to give her money. Then lending money to others, buying and distributing phones etc etc. She was very entrepreneurial actually, unfortunately it was all illegal. We got told this was all our fault for not supervising her closely enough .
According to common sense this is absurd; according to Singapore this is true.
