How is the rate of pay for a weekly rest day calculated for FDWs? Can I pay my $20-a-month FDW allowance to forgo all days off? FDWs are entitled to a weekly day of rest. If the employer and the FDW agree together to opt for compensation, the rate of pay must at least be the daily wage of the FDW for each day of rest. This is due in addition to his monthly salary. The FDW`s daily wage is calculated by dividing its monthly salary by 26 working days. The answer is no.

The duty of security is imposed on the employers of all holders of foreign work permits, to ensure that employers remain responsible for the welfare and eventual repatriation of their workers. These conditions are previously communicated to employers under the conditions of the work permit when they apply for a work permit. Although the employer may choose to communicate orally with the maid about the day-of-stay/holiday policy, it is always advisable to go under a written agreement stating all conditions. The main reason is to avoid any form of future conflict, as only an oral agreement is likely to lead to disputes and misunderstandings in the future. In addition, a clear written agreement between the employer and the FDW provides greater clarity and protection for the interests of both parties. The employment of foreign workers (MOM) also requires that the agreement of the domestic helper on the rules of the day of rest and its remuneration be updated in writing and regularly, instead of being written and regularly, if the changes agreed to the MOM agreement do not lose the safety obligations of employers if the FDW violates its own working permit conditions, for example.
