What is included in the cooking service package?

Cooking service by home chefs or part-time assistant includes customized menu planning and in-home meal preparation for lunch and dinner, ranging from soups, snacks, sweets and so on. If you wish the part-time helper to babysit or clean your house, we strongly recommend you to consider our other packages such as All-inclusive Nanny.

Are there any additional charges?

If you want the home chef to grocery shop or clean up for you, or any other service request, additional charges may apply. For remote areas, $25-$200 of transportation fee will be charged per service according to the calculated walking distance on Google Map. All additional charges will be listed in the detailed payment forms, so you don't have to worry about any charges at the door as all payments are upfront.

Do I have to purchase Workers' Compensation Insurance for the part time helper?

According to Section 40 of the Employees' Compensation Ordinance, all employers (including contractors and sub-contractors) are required to take out insurance policies to cover their liabilities both under the Ordinance and at common law for injuries at work in respect of all their employees, irrespective of the length of employment contract or working hours, full-time or part-time, permanent job or temporary employment. An employer who fails to comply with the Ordinance to secure an insurance cover commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a maximum fine of HK$100,000 and imprisonment for two years.

In order to avoid potential theft, all valuables such as jewelry should be securely stored in an inaccessible area. Important documents should also be securely stored and differentiated from other papers. If you have pets or plants, they should be properly situated for the convenience of the part-time home chef.
