Early release or not

    Early release or not

    We have been thinking to hire a helper since we are planning to have a second baby soon. The problem is that my husband's company might relocate him to Singapore within these 2 years, and seems like all helper contracts are for at least 2 years.

    I guess I could just hire anyway, and then do an early release and perhaps even recommend her to another employer (if she's good). Any idea how helpers would feel about this early release thing? Is there any con involved for her, or for us if that happens?

    usually they are ok with it. if the employer is relocated overseas and that is the reason for termination, they are allowed to remain in hk to process papers. so, helpers are ok with that.

    Agree with Carang, they are usually fine with it.
