Can a family living in a 2-room HDB flat employ an MDW?

As an employer, you will be responsible for the health and well-being of your migrant domestic worker (MDW). This includes ensuring that she has adequate privacy and sleeping space in the home where she is staying.

If you live in a 2-room HDB flat, you may have a space constraint with only 1 bedroom. We will consider your eligibility and need to employ an MDW.

Aside from employing an MDW, you could consider engaging a domestic cleaning service for household chores, and tapping on your extended family, or childcare and eldercare facilities for help with care-giving needs.
