Are Domestic Workers allowed to live out?
Under the work permit conditions of the MOM, domestic workers are not permitted to live outside their employer’s residence. Workers are only allowed to work and reside in the residential address where the work permit is registered, employers are obligated to provide “suitable accommodation” within their own homes for domestic workers.
What are the implications if a domestic worker does not live in their employer’s home?
The Security bond pledge will be in danger of activation by MOM, due to failure to comply with the regulations, and both employer and worker may be subjected to other penalties.
