Guide for employers and FDWs during this period of COVID-19

A guide for employers and FDWs to overcome COVID-19 together!

We understand that this may be a stressful period for everyone with the many advisories being putting out. To guide us during this period, we have pulled out the relevant tips for your attention:

  1. Advisory on Rest Days:
      • FDWs are advised to stay home during this period.
    • FDWs who have errands to run are encouraged to take their rest day on a weekday.
    • FDWs who wish to stay home of their rest day should not be given work on their rest day.
    • For FDWs who wish to forgo their rest day, employers must provide pay in lieu of rest day.
  2. COVID-19 Circuit Breaker Measures: Heightened safe distancing from 7 April to 4 May 2020
    • Stay at home. Only go out if necessary, to buy daily necessities or urgent medical needs.
  3.  At Home:
    • Explain any extra measures of hygiene and sanitation expected in the house and around the children and elderly.
    • Provide a face mask, if needed.
    • Monitoring of health condition – FDWs should be brought or see the doctor immediately if they are feeling unwell.
    • We encourage employers and FDWs to have open and honest communication.

We can only overcome COVID-19 if we work together. So let’s work together!
