Choosing an agency carefully
Important note, when choosing an agency, employers should stay alert to the costs they are covering and check whether the domestic helper will be charged. Legally, employment agencies can only charge domestic helpers 10% of the first month’s salary. Read more about what employment agency fees should typically cover HERE and how to hire domestic helpers fairly HERE.
Some agencies in HK may market low fees and expedited processing but unfortunately, in a lot of cases they are charging workers separately to cover costs, and do not fulfil all their responsibilities as agencies. We encourage employers to choose the agency they work with care. Read our guide on choosing an agency: HERE.
