New Household Services Scheme Pilot to Better Support Families
Expanded pilot to include basic child- and elder-minding services.
25 pilot companies allowed to hire more migrant workers for these services
Give households, including families who need such domestic support for a few hours or days a week, more choices for respite care
Companies to put in place safety measures before deploying workers
Households should assess if the worker is suitable for your needs. For example, ask for the worker’s experience, qualification and training. A member of the household should supervise, especially when using the worker’s services for the first time.

Along with the Waste Management Progressive Wage Model in July, the suite of Progressive Wage moves will cover up to 94% of lower-wage workers.

In line with the shift to DORSCON Green from 13 Feb 2023, we have updated the work and leave arrangements for employees who test positive for COVID-19 or have Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) symptoms.
Employees who are physically well but have self-tested for COVID-19 may be allowed to work from home. If this is not possible, employers are strongly encouraged to treat the period of absence as paid sick leave without requiring a Medical Certificate (MC).
As part of their talent attraction and retention strategies, employers may grant employees with mild ARI symptoms paid sick leave without requiring MC.
As each company has different business needs, employers and employees should discuss and mutually agree on the work and leave arrangements for the period of absence.
