Isabelle Daza Leaves Nothing to Chance With Contract for KasambahaysIsabelle says the employment contract is to protect all parties.by Rachel Perez .
Mom and actress Isabelle Daza seems to have left no stones unturned when she shared a draft of the contract she asks her household helpers to sign, an agreement that, she says, serves to protect all parties concerned.
"I decided to create a contract for my helpers at home to show their job description and their rights as an employee," Isabelle wrote on her Instagram Stories. "This is also so they know they cannot get fired over simple mistakes," she added.
The Domestic Workers Act of 2013 or Republic Act No. 10361, more popularly known as the Batas Kasambahay, was enacted into law to institute policies to protect the welfare of domestic workers, including yayas as well as their employers. The law does require a binding contract between the employer and the kasambahay.
The contract for "Thelma" was written in Filipino, and it includes her job designation, "tagalinis at labandera"(one who cleans and does the laundry).ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWCONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
The next section lists down Thelma's duties ("Mga tungkulin at gawain)," which includes cleaning bedrooms, bathrooms, and the gym ("silid pang ehersisyo) every day, cleaning their room four days in a week, laundry and ironing clothes, among others.
Isabelle's kasambahay contract includes Thelma's hours of work including break times for meals. It also states that she needs to inform her employer on the first day of the month when she would like to take her "lingguhang pahinga" or days off.
The next section discusses compensation. It states the helper's monthly salary and the date of the month it should be given, including the law-mandated 13th-month pay. The only legal deductions from the helper's salary are benefits for SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-IBIG. "I also put that they can't borrow money or advance (unless it's an emergency)," Isabelle stressed.
Also included in the helper's compensation are 30 days-worth of leave with pay every year, and an airfare ticket paid by Isabelle — benefits that are not required in the law. Isabelle's kasambahay contract also includes guidelines for when the kasambahay's employment is to end.
