Adhithiya 04 July 2022

The working hours of a domestic helper depend on the type of work for which they are hired. If a helper is employed part-time, they would probably work for 2 to 3 hours; if it is for half-day, then they would work for approximately 5 hours; if it is for full-day, then you could expect them to work for 8 hours. Apart from this, some domestic helpers work as live-in helpers; even in that case, it is mandatory to give them rest hours and rest days to work more efficiently and better.?? (More)

Domestic servants will help you do all the household activities, making your life easier. Some of the essential things a domestic servant will do are, clean the house daily and maintain it properly. They also assist in occasional deep-cleaning to clean and de-clutter a room or an area. They could cook meals and clean the vessels. They could take care of the plants and your pets, but this should be decided before hiring them. They should also visit markets and shops to buy anything if necessary. Apart from these tasks, you could also discuss with them if you want them to do anything else.?? (More)
