Maid’s reward for her 14 years of service was to be sacked
The domestic worker asked for long service leave, saying she wanted to return to the Philippines because of her illness. Her employers ordered her to leave
Forced out of her employer’s house in Kuwait because she was sick, a Filipino domestic worker left empty-handed after 14 years of service.
The woman, identified only as Corazon, had told her employer she wanted to return to the Philippines because of the illness, The Filipino Times reported. But she was offered no money after asking to be compensated for her long service; instead, she was told to get out of the house. Her employers also tried to take her phone and passport.
Corazon convinced a Filipino man she saw outside the house to post a video of her on Facebook, hoping it would get the attention of the Philippine government. She has a plane ticket for Manila, but is seeking government help for her onward flight to Cotabato City.
