We recently moved to the area and will be having a weekly housekeeper. I'm not sure of what's appropriate or legally required here, but have read some stuff, so I'm just going to rattle off some questions and would like to hear your thoughts. Please chime in on things I haven't considered too!
Do we provide or pay for lunch, or is that her responsibility?
What about bus fare or gas?
We've read about holiday, vacation, severance pay. Should we keep track of days/hours worked to avoid future issues? Should our housekeeper sign anything?
We've read conflicting info about if we're required to pay into IMSS or not for weekly helpers. Any insight on this?
Should we have a contract? This seems so formal to us, but if this is needed, can anyone share a sample?
Any different responses for a bi-weekly gardener?
What haven't we thought of or what else should we be aware of?
