4 Safar 1434

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 18 ,2012- The cost of recruiting Indonesian maids incurred by employers will increase further compared to the amount agreed upon in the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the Malaysian and Indonesian governments in 2011.

Malaysia National Association of Employment Agencies (PIKAP) president, Datuk Raja Zulkepley Dahalan said the increase was necessary as the cost agreed upon earlier could not be implemented as it only involved the cost incurred by both employers and maids only.

"The cost structure agreed earlier was RM4,511 as payment for the recruitment of an Indonesian maid by the employer to the agency including the RM1,800 payment for the maid's advance by the employer to the employment agency.
