Our part time(once a week half day domestic helper) has not been performing certain duties we have asked her to do, please advise what is the best way of dealing with this? I have asked her on a few occasions in a pleasant manner to do these duties but they are still not being done. Should I give her a written letter and mention specifically what is expected? She also recently left an empty envelope and letter advising that she is getting married which seems to me a subtle request for money for the wedding. How should I handle this in a diplomatic and professional manner? Thank you for your assistance.
re: Domestic Worker
You need to give continually warnings in writing for each wrong doing. In essence the Labour Relations Act calls for progressive discipline. It is only on this basis that you can eventually then lead to possibly having a disciplinary enquiry which might even lead to dismissal if the duties are not performed correctly on a continual basis.
