Levy placement fee only on first-time maids Published on Mar 11, 2013

MS AGNES Kwok Sook Yee says she is willing to pay the placement fee if the maid is really trained ("Placement fee should be tied to maids' training"; last Monday).

Why is the onus on employers to pay for the maids' training?

In most fields and jobs, employees pay for their own training to upgrade themselves so they can get better jobs.

If maids want to work in more developed countries, they should pay the training fees.

I understand that they may not have the financial ability to do so; that is why the employers usually pay first and the maids repay them later.

This is why such maid placement fees should be levied only once and not each time a maid leaves to work for another employer.

If the maids pay only once, then they will not feel the financial burden each time they change employers.
