In an attempt to crack down on malpractices among employment agencies for domestic helpers, the Labour Department has issued a 100-page draft code of practice setting out a list of standards the city’s 1,400 agencies must meet.
Since the 1970s, foreign domestic workers have been permitted to stay in Hong Kong to address the city's shortage of local, full-time live-in helpers. At present, their minimum allowable wage is HK$4,310 per month.
