Sample Termination Letter for Domestic Helper Contract

Both domestic helpers and their employer have the right to terminate a domestic helper employment contract. If the helper is unable to continue working or decides to pursue other plans, or the employer finds the helper unable to fulfill tasks properly or committed serious offense, it may be time to part ways.

As employing domestic helpers is regulated by Hong Kong’s Labour Department and entails other legal implications such as validity of working visa or, if applicable, payment of long service payment,  a formal letter should be presented as proof of notification from one party to the other.
