A Minimum Wage for Maids in Bahrain

The Indian Mission in Bahrain has announced new regulations geared towards protecting the rights of Indian housemaids.

Employers are now required to pay their maids a minimum of $265 US dollars a month.   In addition, a maid’s contract should specify “basic monthly salary, hours of work, overtime pay, salary payment by cheque, termination of contract, including clause on termination by employee and employer, and free transportation and medical check-up for the worker.”
