Maid fired after employer hurt in fall on wet floor
Woman dismisses Filipina domestic worker for not drying floor
A Filipina maid was fired after her employer slipped on a wet floor and was taken to hospital in Hong Kong on Monday. The 49-year-old Filipina had just mopped the floor at her employer’s home in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui on Monday, the Sing Tao Daily reported.
The female employer, who suffered a head injury, reported the case to police and was sent to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment. After being discharged from hospital, she fired the maid.
Cheung Kit-man, the chairman of the Hong Kong Employment Agencies Association, said if employers were not happy with their domestic workers they should issue a verbal warning or send a warning letter before dismissing them.
