Can I bring my helper to take care of my child or parent at a relative’s house?
Based on the Work Permit regulatory conditions, foreign domestic workers (FDWs) are only allowed to perform domestic chores at the residential address declared to MOM. However, we understand that you may need your Singapore maid to take care of your child or parent at another place, such as relative’s house.
In such case, you should notify MOM before proceeding with the arrangement. To notify MOM, you must first:
- Obtain your FDW’s written agreement to take care of your child or parent at your relative’s house.
- Ensure your FDW does not perform the full load of housework in both households.
- If the FDW needs to stay overnight to take care of your child or parent at your relative’s house, please ensure her accommodation meets the requirements.
As an employer, you remain responsible for your FDW’s upkeep and maintenance, which include providing acceptable accommodation, adequate food and medical treatment.
