    Final payments for helper

    WE are leaving HK after 3 years. I am unsure on what we have to pay our help as we are terminating her contract early I know the wages, holidays , flight home but someone mentioned to me severance pay? What is this?
    Thanks for any help!

    Noella, Here's some info on Severance Pay

    Severance Payment
    A foreign domestic helper is entitled to severance payment if he/she:
    - has not less than 24 months of service with the same employer prior to
    the termination; and
    is dismissed or the contract is not being renewed by reason of
    redundancy.

    Amount of severance payment
    Monthly wages x 2/3 x years of service
    Service of incomplete year should be calculated on a pro rata basis.

    more info here:
