The hassle factor involved here is not worth the bit of money collected for UIF. For this reason I agree with brianvds - stack the dirty dishes in a dishwasher and wear clothes that do not require ironing rather than employ a domestic worker. The system does more to discourage employment than it helps the unemployed.

The hassle factor is one, the second is that I had a bloody government employee screaming at my front gate to get my attention. The less I have to do with the government (taxes is enough thank you), the better. To have to answer to the government when it comes to a personal contract between me and my domestic, I certainly dont want nor need any inteference.

I dont need the lady really, I needed her when the kids were little but they all but gone now, I kept her because I'm genuinly fond of her...

I have'nt decided what to do as yet, she's coming back from leave only next Monday and I'll have to sit her down and have a discussion. Whether I'll have the heart and the guts to send her on her way is debatable, but I can possibly contract her for only once a week and she'll have to take the paycut that goes with it and go look for alternative work for the remaining days. I'll see what her reaction is and take if from there.

Make sure you explain to her that the problem was caused by the government. The same government that she in all probability helped to vote into power, and will in all probability vote for again next election.
