Can maids legally work part time in Singapore?

Can maids legally work part time in Singapore? The answer is pretty simple. You cannot hire a part time maid on your own because Ministry of Manpower (MOM) Singapore strictly prohibits the process of hiring part time maids. If you hire an illegal part-time maid you will end up facing a lot of complications. It does not matter how good the quality of service at offer because it is completely illegal.

As a house owner, you will place yourself at a risk of facing heavy penalties and the maid will also have to pay fine as well. The law for Foreign Domestic Worker in Singapore says that the maid should work for the same employer who has applied for his/her work permit and the worker has no right to perform any part-time jobs. All these aspects will be clearly stated on the work permit of the maids.
Maid Working Illegally
All these rules have been introduced with the good intention of preventing unwanted complications. Allowing maids to work for multiple employers can lead to inadequate rest or exploitation by the employers and the employer will not be having any responsibility for the well being of the maid as well. On the other hand, the safety and security of the employers will always be in danger when they hire an illegal part time maid.

Irrespective of all these rules and regulations, some people still hire the services of part time illegal maids to avert the obligations imposed by the law and it can be said without any doubt that they are flirting with danger because they always stand in with a chance of facing a fine up to $ 15,000 or imprisonment up to 12 months or both.

Some people might not be interested to hire the services of a full time maid because there will not be too much cleaning work available at their homes. But in the case of some other people, they may not be able to afford a full time maid. What is the best solution available? Hiring the services of registered and accredited house cleaning companies will serve the purpose in the best possible manner. Responsible and reliable companies will always follow the rules and regulations and they will send employees who are properly licensed and insured to safeguard the interests of the customers with great efficiency. You can ask the company to show you the work permit of the maid and such a method of approach will make sure that the violation of law does not exist.

Professional house cleaning companies will always conduct background check of the maids to ensure the safety of their customers and you should also understand the fact that it is illegal to hire foreign freelance part-time maids for your cleaning requirements. A good number of maids offer their services without showing any work permit and those people, who hire the services of these part time illegal maids, will invite all types of complications in the future. There is no doubt about the fact that maids cannot legally work part time in Singapore and you need to hire the services of top quality house cleaning companies to find a solution to your cleaning requirements.
