SINGAPORE: A foreign domestic helper took to social media complaining about her employer’s rude mother. In an anonymous post to a support group for domestic helpers and employers alike, the maid shared that she had two previous employers, one where she finished her contract and another where she only worked for three months.

She shared that she had already worked for her third and current employer for six months. The maid wrote that the reason for her post was to learn more about employment rules and if she was at fault or if her employer was. The maid said she was hired to look after her employer’s first baby. After she went on home leave and came back to work for the same employer, she found that they had a second child, who she also took care of.

The maid added that there was a lot of work for her, which she did not complain about. However, she felt her employer’s elderly mother was rude and would find fault in everything she did. The helper said that she had no complaints about her employers themselves, as they treated her like their younger sister. She felt that the parents of her employer were the problem.

In an anonymous post to a Facebook support group for domestic helpers and employers alike, the maid said that her main role was to look after an elderly woman. She said that the woman would not sleep and would make her massage her feet the entire night. She would not get any sleep and have to then work in the morning.
