Curated by vivien

Employers can be debarred from hiring maids if they commit certain offences, such as:

  • Abusing a maid.
  • Exploit or ill-treat a maid, for example not paying her salary or not giving her enough food and rest.
  • Instruct a maid to perform tasks that may danger her safety and health.
  • Illegal employing or deploying a maid.

When an employer is debarred

If an employer is under investigation for offences, MOM will take this into consideration when they apply for or renew a Work Permit for a maid.

Employers who are debarred will not be allowed to apply for a maid or renew an existing Work Permit.

The period of debarment depends on the severity of the offences committed.
