What do I need to provide for my helper?

Updated a month ago ​by David Bensadon

MOM have guidelines and rules for what employers need to provide for their helpers that can be found here.

To summarize, your helper must be provided with:

  • Adequate shelter
  • Basic amenities: a mattress, pillow, blanket and bathroom amenities.
  • Sufficient ventilation
  • Your helper should be safe
  • You should provide your helper with a separate room. If that is not possible, you should ensure that the accommodation has adequate space and privacy - your helper must not sleep in the same room as a male adult or teenager
  • Your helper is entitled to one rest day per week
  • Your helper must be adequately fed and have 3 meals a day
