An employer worried about her helper being bullied by her confinement nanny asked how she could prevent the latter from happening.

A Confinement Nanny is an individual hired to care for a new baby and a new mother either daily between 9am – 6pm or on a live-in basis.

In an anonymous post on Facebook group FDW in Singapore (working conditions forum) on Tuesday (Aug 2), the employer asked other helpers in the group about their experiences.

“If your employer has engaged a confinement nanny when there’s a newborn, what are some of the boundaries that you wish your employer has set prior to her arrival?” the employer wrote.

She added that she had heard “horror stories confinement nannies bullying FDW by instructing them to do household chores, baby laundry, helping to cook confinement food”.

Other helpers who commented on the post said that the confinement nanny was ordering them around and pushing many of her chores to the helper. Another employer suggested that there be a clear list demarcating the chores and to whom each chore was assigned.

Last month, a foreign domestic worker found herself unsure if she should renew her contract with her employer upon mutual agreement or go through an agency’s official process.

In her post on popular Facebook page FDW in Singapore (working conditions forum), she asked if anyone else had renewed their contracts with their employers without getting an agency involved.

She added that she planned to ask them to draw up a mutually agreeable contract, as she noted that some items discussed during her initial hiring interview were not followed.

The helper, who used a throwaway account, wrote on Monday (Jul 18) that her contract with her current employers was about to end soon, and her boss had informed her that they will process her paperwork themselves.

Maid says her employer agreed to different things during interview, asks if she should re-contract upon mutual agreement or go through agency
