Dont pay her last salary, place a ban and send her back. You will lose money anyway.edited by derien on 28/11/2011
I would ban her too.. if you get rid of her she will go out and do more or less the same thing to somone else.
Thanks for your advices. The idea of putting a ban on someone gives me chicken pots, even if i understand your point of views, even if am am starting to be totally fed up with the problems i am having with maids. The first one had a mental issue and we had to take her back to the airport after one month, she stole a lot of things in our house. This one is becoming more lazy everyday and does pushes the limit much too far. We have to make a decision quickly, knowing that we will leave Dubai for 10 days at christmas. Great !
Yes, if you send her then ban her, otherwise, do not give her any more money and wait until she has repaid you everything, then release her. Chances are that she will do a runner anyway, and you will most likely not get your money back. If she does that then you will have to run around doing all the immigration stuff. Make sure she does not have her passport. Decide what to do, without taking her feelings into consideration. What she wants now does not matter.This is clearly a case of give them an inch. You have given her the whole mile. Her salary is way too much and she has taken you for a total ride. Time to cut the rope.edited by IAMVP on 28/11/2011
Ask her how she will repay you the money she owes you !!! That is a lot of money she has taken in advance. Sounds like she had this planned. The problem is if she does not find a new job within 30 days of leaving you, you will have to put her on a plane back home anyway. If it were me I think I would use her next months salary to buy her a one way ticket back to the philippines. However, apparently a lot of them get airside and then take a flight to Kish (or wherever) and just come back on a visitor visa, so if she has really been deceitful, then I would also put a ban on her, as per IAMVP, so she cannot get around having her sponsorship cancelled.The other option is to get her to repay you before you agree to release her to another employer, but make sure she does not abscond in the meantime. My helper who was moving from a local family to an expat family, had to pay the local family 4,000 to cover their costs, before they would release her. Her cousin is now looking for a job, currently working for a local family, and they will only release her when she pays them 2,000AED (she earns 1.100AED with no full day off !)I don't know how it works though, maybe ask around, and see if you can do the same.Good Luck
Cancel and ban. Don't let her go and abuse another employers kindness.
Our maid has started to work for us 11 months ago. Our relation is getting really bad and got to the point that she asked me today to relief her. I have been quite nice with her, good salary (2400) a lot of days off ( because we are often away), and she has her own room and a big kitchen. I gave her 3000 in advance, because in january she was suppose to have her one month of holiday and her plane ticket and one month of salary because she did not want to go to philippines but wanted to stay and work to get more money. Which is a total of 6800 for the month of january.We are also going to loose 2000 of deposit now that she wants to go away. What am i suppose to pay now that she is looking for an other job? sI feel like she has really taken advantage of me and i am quite upset. Thanks for your advices.
