I hope not - it is getting so it is not worth it to hire anyone in DR. Do your own yard work, pool work and repairs till as long as you can - then hope your step kids will do it

Insurance ??

against theft?
Health?

One more clue here , please

My latest Domestic agreed to terms , Room with en suite bath, food and 10Kdop after 6 weeks she asked for Insurance and medicine and days off to Clinic with pay. After I said no, she tells me she has another offer in POP. I said good luck, have a good life.
I might have conceded on the Insurance since we have Corporate coverage; but will not be held ransom.
Too old and too stubborn.... another severance on the horizon. WTF anyway?

Maybe they are talking about medical insurance. We pay our maid's medical insurance and don't dock her money if she has to go to Santiago or La Vega for a doctor's visit. She is the one who stayed with my wife overnight in the clinic when she had to have an operation, she will go to the house on her day off to check on my MIL if she is sick....etc.

health insurance is becoming more common in the campo where I live.
It is kind of important and doesnt really cost that much

My gardener is insured. It's no different than any other employee that is insured through TSS. Rates are based on salary and days worked. It's not expensive, but worth a lot to them. I'm not sure what the law is in regards to domestic help, but I treat him as a part-time employee.
