Malaysian employers look to hiring Indonesian domestic workers again, but fees remain a concern

KUALA LUMPUR (CNA) – It has been a stressful period for Tasha Prasheela Chandran, 36, as her family enquired high and low on hiring a foreign domestic helper for her mother-in-law.

“I have not personally hired a domestic helper, but my mother-in-law has hired one to help her over the past 10 years,” Tasha Prasheela, a lawyer, said.

Her mother-in-law’s last domestic worker, an Indonesian lady, had left in November 2021.

Tasha Prasheela and her mother-in-law are not alone, as many Malaysian families rely on domestic workers to help with household duties.
