I have a domestic worker that has been working for me for almost 3 years part time. I do not need to register her for UIF as she works less than 24 hours per month. I did not have a contract with her since she started.
I was wondering if I can contract her retrospectively for all the years till now so that all my documentation is correct. It will also be beneficial to her since she will be able to prove that she has been working for 3 years in this house now.
Also will me paying her UIF be beneficial towards her? I heard if I terminate her job she will not be able to claim UIF if she has other part time jobs? How does my contribution help her then? It really isn't that much to pay I think, but if it is useless why bother.
Also in the domestic worker contracts I see she must have atleast 3 days leave in the year, but I never really gave her a choice as to when she can take leave. I just gave her paid leave over December. Should the 3 days be counted over and above that and should I pay it out now since she hasn't taken it?
Thanks in advance
