Document Overview

This contract is essential for anyone employing domestic help, such as housekeepers, gardeners, nannies, care-givers, or domestic drivers. It adheres to South African labour laws, including the Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Sectoral Determination Seven for Domestic Workers. Our contract includes:
  • Employer and domestic worker’s details
  • Commencement of employment
  • Details on remuneration
  • Pension and medical aid provisions
  • Employee’s duties
  • Working hours
  • Leave provisions
  • Terms for termination
To use this contract effectively:
  • Review the sample Domestic Worker’s Contract of Employment. Make necessary changes to suit your requirements.
  • Fill in the relevant details in the indicated blanks.
  • Sign the agreement and have your domestic helper do the same.
If your domestic worker is unable to read or write, a mark such as an “X” or a fingerprint can be used as a signature. However, ensure that the terms of the agreement are explained clearly before asking your domestic worker to mark the document. Even if the employee does not sign the contract, it remains valid. However, it’s highly recommended for the employee to sign the terms of employment.
