What if an FDW's employer does not meet the medical insurance requirement?

As employers of FWs and FDWs benefit directly from hiring these workers, they should bear all the cost of maintaining them. This includes any medical cost necessary for her health.

Employers must purchase medical insurance of a minimum coverage. This helps the employer to cover the workers’ medical bills.

It is an offence if an employer does not buy the required medical insurance. If convicted, the employer faces a fine, imprisonment, or both. In addition, the employer may be barred from employing FDWs.
