    Severance payment for domestic helper

    Is is true that if I did not renew my domestic helper's contract after she has finished four years, I still need to pay her severance payment, which is calculated similar to long service payment.

    According to the ImmD Guidebook (para 71 here) For Severance Payment and Long Service Payment the normal rules of the Employment Ordinance apply to FDHs.

    Severance pay is applicable for anyone employed for not less than 24 months. Long Service Pay for anyone employed for not less than 5 years.

    thats helpful! A few people who I've talked to thought only long service payment (from yr 5 onwards) is payable which is why I was not sure.
