No. Foreign domestic workers (FDWs) are not covered under Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) because they live and work close to their employers in the same premises, making it difficult to determine whether any injury sustained in the premises was due to work-related activities. However, employers are required to buy personal accident insurance (PAI) for FDWs to provide them compensation in the event of death or permanent disability during their stay in Singapore.
As an employer, you will be responsible for the health and well-being of your foreign domestic worker. This includes ensuring that she has adequate privacy and sleeping space in the home where she is staying.
If you live in a 2-room HDB flat, you may have a space constraint with only 1 bedroom. We will consider your eligibility and need to employ an FDW.
Aside from employing an FDW, you could consider engaging a domestic cleaning service for household chores, and tapping on your extended family, or childcare and eldercare facilities for help with care-giving needs.
