For those who are interested, I wanted to post the form response I got to my email regarding a mandatory weekly day off for FDW’s.
Dear Mrs. Crystal,
Thank you for your feedback dated 29 June 2011.
MOM is currently studying the suggestion for the Government to legislate a weekly rest day for FDWs, with compensation in-lieu when the FDW and employer mutually agree that the rest day be foregone.
We will need to consult with all stakeholders, including employers, employment agencies, domestic workers and non-governmental organizations and MOM would like to reassure employers that all views and feedbacks would be considered.
Furthermore, should there be any changes, sufficient notice will be provided. We also welcome members of the public to email their views and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your feedback.
