Me: Your domestic worker is with us. She no longer wishes to work for you because the work is too tiring.
Employer: How dare she run away! If the work is too tiring, why did she sign the contract?
Me: I understand she should not have left without notice especially since your father is bed ridden. Perhaps we can talk things through to…?
Employer: There is nothing to talk! You are harbouring her illegally understand?! She has run away and she is illegal ok! You better hand her over to me or the agent or I’ll call the police!
Me: I know you are angry. It would be good to talk things through. Care giving is not easy and it’s easy to burn out…
Employer: Don’t lecture me! She is illegal now. The police will arrest her! I’m going to send her back to her country!
Just another day talking to an angry employer
