Rest Days for Maid
To ensure that your foreign domestic worker gets enough mental and physical rest, you should allow her to have a regular rest day.
Your FDW is entitled to a weekly rest day if her Work Permit was issued or renewed after 1 January 2013.
You and your FDW should mutually agree on which day of the week she should take the rest day. To avoid disputes, both of you could have this agreement in writing.
If your FDW agrees to work on her rest day, you should compensate her with one of the following:
- At least 1 day’s salary.
- A replacement rest day taken within the same month.
