    My understanding is that a helper is considered legal if s/he holds a HKID and hasn't signed any (one) contract with an employer.

    A Filipina who is married to a foreigner, holds a HKID card, and hasn't signed a contract with any one employer is thus considered "legal." S/he can then work for several employers legally.

    All domestic helpers have a HKID. You need to check their visa in their passport to see if they are allowed to work outside of the employer's residence.If they have a domestic helper's visa they can't work partime outside of their employer's home.

    If they have a dependent visa, they should be allowed to work anywhere, but from July 1st, all spouses on dependent visas are not allowed to work and need to apply for a working visa.

    That's not strictly true. If they hold a dependants visa already prior to 1st July, as I understand it, they can continue to work without applying for a working visa. It's only if they are applying for the first time AFTER 1st July that they need a working visa.
