A post has recently emerged online which was uploaded by a netizen to a FoodPanda Delivery Riders Facebook page.
Pictures were included in the post by the netizen who appears to be a delivery rider on the FoodPanda plaform.
A closer look at the picture shows a lady of a darker complexion donning a FoodPanda delivery rider uniform at a back alley with a wheelchair bound lady seemingly there to deliver or pick up orders.
Another picture which was also uploaded also allegedly shows the lady in question sitting outside an F&B establishment area seemingly waiting to pick up an order as she was seated at the delivery riders waiting area.
The netizen wonders if the lady who appears to be a foreign domestic worker is paid for doing this or if her employers know about her doing this and given that she is with a wheelchair bound lady, it makes it even more not right that she is doing so apart from it being against the law set by the Ministry of Manpower on guidelines which employers and their foreign domestic workers must abide to.
Laws in Singapore
According to laws stated by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), foreign domestic workers must abide by these rules while they are employed in Singapore.
- Hold a valid work permit
- Can only work for employer at residential address declared to MOM
- Can only do domestic chores
- Cannot work with other employers
The penalties for helpers being deployed to work illegally are a fine of up to $10,000 for the employer and they might even be banned from employing the help of domestic workers in future.
Here is the post by the netizen
“Wonder how much more does this maid get paid by the employer?
Does the grandma gets paid too? 🤔”
