WOMAN FORCED MAID TO EAT WORM AFTER FINDING IT IN HER VEGETABLES

My sister recently decided to hire a maid for our family. All of us are working adults and we just wanted someone to manage the household chores and cooking.

Before I go on to share about the maid issues, I’d like to give some background info about my sister. She has extreme issues with insects and finding them in her food in particular.

I think it all started when she accidentally ate half of the worm in her vegetables and vomitted on the spot. Ever since then, she’d seldom order vegetables outside. Instead she would personally wash, clean and cook the vegetables herself for the family to eat.

I kid you not when I say she washes the vegetable stem and leafs one by one.

For the hiring of the maid, she was the one who did the searching and interviewing while I simply accompanied her. During the interview with the maid we eventually hired, she asked the maid if she knew how to wash vegetables thoroughly. Of course the maid said yes.

She then shared with the maid about her trauma with finding insects in vegetables and that she really wanted someone who is as thorough as her when it came to washing and cleaning. Again, the maid reassured her that she could the job.

So my sister told her that if she found an insect in the vegetable, the maid would be required to eat the insect as punishment for not washing it properly. I’m not sure if the maid was desperate or confident , but she agreed to my sister’s terms and signed a separate contract for this particular condition. Incase you’re wondering,  the offered salary was $800.

Not even 1 month into working for our family, the dreaded scenario happened. My sister really found a worm in her vegetable during dinner. Enraged and disgusted, she ordered the maid to eat the worm infront of her. We tried to dissuade her in vain and the maid really ate the worm.

Few days later, the maid threatened to report my sister to MOM and refused to work. She said she wants a transfer or my sister would get into trouble. Thing is, apart from this wormy incident,  everyone including my sister has treated the maid really well.

Question is, can my sister get into trouble? Can we just repatriate her and close this chapter without getting the authorities involved? Can the maid really do anything?
