Maid's off day what time to come back?

My newly hired maid said she will go off at 7am and come back at 10pm. Is 10pm consider late to back home? Also, can we check her bag when she go out on sunday her off day?

What is the rationale for checking her bag? Are you afraid she will take drugs home?

Just put yourself in her shoes as an employee. Do you want to be treated this way?

10pm consider late. Latest by 8pm.

God knows what they do outside. (I know some maids work as hourly maid during their offday)

Their off day means they are entitled to full off from 0000 to 2359 however at employer/maid discretion, they can decide on the time to leave and return with mutual agreement, however cannot be forced as it’s their entitlement rights as long hours are within their “off day”.

I was enforced on this by manpower enforcement officer previously (after maid complain). Sigh

Wa 7am kinda early. For me it’s fine but she not tired ? Off day still need to wake up so early?
Usually the maids will gather together and bring food and eat. Seldom they will shop whole day. Where got money to shop also.

See so many slave drivers here. So little off-time and still want to squeeze the maids
Granted its a willing employer willing employee situation, but really, would you like to be treated this way?

Too late lah. Don't know she got mix with what type of people outside also. Lucky Government got impose the periodical medical check up. Quite worry when young children under maid care.

My newly hired maid said she will go off at 7am and come back at 10pm. Is 10pm consider late to back home? Also, can we check her bag when she go out on sunday her off day?
