    Default Please expalin the "13th month" for an employee in the DR.

    I've seen threads on the 13 th month of pay for an employee but have never seen the details on this. If you employee house hold help in the Dominican Republic are you expected to pay an additional month? If so, when is the payment expected to be made?

    thanks

    A household worker (maid, cook, gardener) is sort of outside the rules. HOWEVER, they expect to be paid that 13th salary in December.
    Payment is usually done during the middle of the month.

    It is no big deal and everyone expects it and counts on it for Christmas.

    Just plan ahead. Your help will appreciate it.
