I don’t know what legal obligations or rights are out there, but felt usually 3-6 months before contract ends, can start to nego and discuss with the helper whether they would like to extend already lor…

In the event that the helper express intention not to stay longer than 2yrs then employer also have enough lead time to interview others and start the employment process for the next one…

In the event, the helper agrees to continue, then there is also sufficient time to discuss remuneration, whether when to take the “home leave” or postpone to her preferred period during their holidays etc etc…check on her passport expiry and also eventual renewal of her work permit.

Two key things are MDW’s work permit and insurance. MOM will send you a letter 8 weeks before your MDW’s work permit expires.

Here are two guides for your reading.

Renewing your Domestic Helper’s Contract and Work Permit

6 things you should know before renewing your foreign domestic helper’s work permit


Basically two months to sort things out. Renewing of work permit is instant but you need to take note how long the insurance company process the renewal or new application. Usually within a day or two (working business day) but give a week period.

Some employers I heard don’t provide refresh contract for the MDW. My advice is please do up a contract. You can state how long you & your MDW helper need to give notice.
