Re: Please Help! Termination of foreign maid
I am frustrated with the agent and just want some action. I am not clear with the labour law regarding foreign maid. Please help.
My maid came in April through an agent, he told me that if I am not happy / or the maid cannot work accordingly than I can change within 3 months. The maid gone through all medical check up and works in my place. After 2 months the Fomema department sent me a letter stating that the maid has PTB and is not suitable to work and need to be sent home. I called up the agent and he told me to go for 2nd opinion, and I did. Those clinic under Fomema, told me don't waste your money and time this maid just has to be sent back. I went to other doctors they heard it is PTB immediately they told me to send her home. I told my agent and he said he will settle this in a week's time.
Well I waited, waited no news from the agent. I called and called he never wants to answers. Now its already 3 weeks and I am worried about my health and my mother's health as she is old and is always in contact with the maid.
I did not go to the agent's office as it is in another district and I gave to take leave to deal with him.
Please advise what can be done and what action a can take against this irresponsible agent.. Will I get back the money I paid to the agent.
