There are some potential problems in direct hiring, despite the low cost. Although there are also risks involved when you hire through an agency, such as when your maid has absconded, the agency fee will not be refunded. However, there are some agencies that provide 6-month warranty in the event your maid absconded in the first six months.
If you are hiring directly, here are some problems you may face:
1. Difficulty in finding a foreign helper
Unless you have the contact of a potential foreign maid in the country with a social visit pass in the country, it will be quite difficult for an employer to find a potential employee without an agent’s biodata. This brings us to the next issue.
2. The risk of getting scammed
Many employers will likely contact their previous live-in maid who is now back in their home country. The cost for the maid to fly in to Malaysia will be borne by the employer. However, there have been cases where the potential helper disappearing after receiving money to travel from their village to the city and also after getting the plane ticket.
3. Lack of training
Without an agency as a middle person, all training of the helper will fall on the employer. This does not just include training on the work but also the introduction to a difficult culture, especially for a new worker.
