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.
Are there any additional or hidden cost charged by the part time helper service?
If you asked for temporary care for critically ill patients, the housekeeper will charge you an extra 10% to 15% on top of basic rates per day. If the employer lives in a remote area, the fees will be slightly higher. In addition, near festivals, such as the Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn festival, the service fees for housekeeper are usually raised. The most common additional cost will be the compensation insurance for local housekeepers that are required to be purchased by the employer. If you need to hire pat time helper on Sundays, there will be a special time period charge of HK$5 per hour.
