因为印尼籍前女佣巴蒂成功翻案,女佣被非法调派其他地点工作的问题,亦开始引起关注。

人力部在本月8日的文告,显示只有24巴仙的女佣,会自行揭发雇主非法调派的恶行。至于女佣巴蒂在四年前,只因为向前雇主廖文良一家申诉将举报人力部,便被廖家解雇,廖家两日后报警指控巴蒂涉嫌偷窃近5万元财物,包括名表、包包等。

不幸的是,近期职总家庭佣工中心(CDE),亦揭发一名菲籍女佣,被不当要求到另外四户家庭打扫,每周一次还要打扫办公室,平均每日工作,都要长达14至15小时!

然而,这名女佣即使知道这是非法的,但碍于害怕失去工作,只能哑忍长达三年,都不敢向人力部等机构举报。

根据职总家庭佣工中心的脸书贴文,除了繁重的工作,女佣的睡眠和休息时间很短,该中心在介入此事后,协助向人力部举报。不料得知此事的雇主,还企图遣返女佣,所幸在中心介入下未能得逞。女佣最终找到可共事愉快的雇主。

根据规定,除了工作准证列明的住宅地址,雇主是不能非法调派女佣到其他地点工作的。

至于本地客工组织情义之家,也提及在疫情期间,尽管打扫公共组屋的工作量增加,但一些外籍清洁工友的薪资却没有提升,他们有者甚至要工作15至16小时。

即使有,有者仅领取每月区区50至100元的加班费,也缺乏休假和年假。而根据情义之家的估计,这些孟加拉籍的清洁工友,可能每小时工时仅仅二元。
