A overseas home helper discovered herself at a loss for what to do when her employer prolonged her work allow for 2 years as a substitute of the one 12 months she needed.
In a put up to Facebook group FDW in Singapore (working situations discussion board) one other girl, a netizen by the title of Devi Balbuena Sadang Abad, requested the query on behalf of her buddy.
Ms Devi wrote that her buddy prolonged working along with her employer for one more 12 months, having it finish in December. However, her employer prolonged her work allow for two years as a substitute of the 12 months that she needed.
“They agreed that she work[s] only till december.No written agreement”, Ms Devi wrote. Ms Devi then requested if the helper would want to ask permission from her employer ought to she wish to discover a new employer in December.
Other helpers who commented on the put up stated that they skilled comparable conditions and have been caught working for his or her employers as a result of they didn’t have a written settlement.
Jasmine Breeze, an administrator of the group, replied: “To transfer is not an entitlement. We need employer’s consent. No consent, no transfer. 1 year or 2 years,regardless of how long the wp was renewed, it is irrelevant to the transfer. Whether helper leave after 1 or after 2 years, she can not transfer at will. She will need employer’s consent to be able to transfer to new employer. Too bad for her, they don’t have any written agreement so if employer will not allow her to transfer and send her home instead, there’s nothing much she can do. Since she decided to stay on for another year, then I wish her Goodluck. Hopefully, she will be able to transfer with ease when the time comes”.
Here’s what the remainder stated:
