Mandatory Rest Day for Migrant Domestic Workers

January 11, 2023

To allow MDWs to rest and recharge from work, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has announced that all employers must provide their Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs) at least one rest day a month that cannot be compensated away from 1 January 2023. It will apply to all new and existing MDWs in Singapore.

MDWs and employers should come to a mutual agreement on the rest day arrangements. MOM has developed a guide that can help employers and MDWs discuss and agree on how the mandatory rest day will be taken. Employers must also update their MDW’s rest day information via the MDW eServices portal.
