SINGAPORE: The Association of Employment Agencies (Maid Agencies) and Casetrust have come up with two standard contracts for maid employers.
The contracts will have a service agreement between the maid agency and the maid employer and a second employment contract between the employer and the maid.
Under the agreement, there would be a well defined replacement policy and a fairer refund policy reducing the possibility of disputes.
While the employment contract stipulates the minimum one day off entitlement for the maid in a month, if the day off is not taken, the maid employer would have to compensate the maid in cash.
All employment agencies accredited by the two bodies (Casetrust and Association of Employment Agencies) would have to implement the standard contracts by the 15th of September 2006.
