    Thanks everyone - feel like I've got a good idea how we would expect to plan our helper's day. First time posted on here, so great to get such useful replies!

    No law or policy on working hours but entitle to one day off per week. Mine works from 6am to whenever time she finishes all the work.

    Hi Rani, i've lost touch of the current minimum wage for DH. I thought it was $3700 or something for new contracts right? Kindly clarify...
