Know your rights – your work permit and passport

DW friends, please be aware of your rights regarding your work permit and passport.

From the MOM’s “Guide to Employing a domestic worker”

Retention of FDW’s Work Permit and Passport

  • You must not retain your FDW’s Work Permit. She should carry her original Work Permit with her at all times for inspection on demand by any public officer.
  • You must not retain your FDW’s passport without her consent. If prior consent was given for you to safe keep the passport, you must return the passport to your FDW upon her request.

More details can be found on the MOM website:

Call the MOM hotline if your passport or work permit is wrongfully withheld. Number: 6438 5122
