    she's been with me for almost 4 years. i pay her more because (1) she's good, (2) she doesn't need to be micromanaged, (3) she's flexible --- does more hours if more are needed, (4) she's reliable ---she's missed 1 day of work in the past 4 years.
    Hi Carang,
    When you say local , do you mean your helper is from local- Chinese?
    Thanks,

    If she is legal and working a 40 hour week you are paying her HK$120 below the legal minimum wage...

    Our helper is local Cantonese, and we pay 450 a day each day she works. Which is about 5-6 hours at a time.

    An employee who has been employed continuously by the same employer for four weeks or more, with at least 18 hours worked in each week is regarded as being employed under a continuous contract.
