Runaway maids have proven to be a very serious problem in Egypt such like any country, it's normal to have this type of issue, but the way we deal with it is different. And that's why most of Egyptian families prefer to get their maids from House Care Egypt. Statistics made by our research show that there are an average of 500 maids who abscond every month in Egypt, the number maybe a little more or less, because we didn't cover all "maid agencies in Egypt" in our research. The issue seen more among maids who come from African countries to work in Egypt?
Many Egyptian families prefer to employ specially African maids because of lower wages and low contract costs.
It may initially look to be less costly in hiring these maids comparing to making a deal to bring a maid from the her origin, but hiring the runaway maid can actually turn out to be very costly if these maids ran away after the third month if not earlier or later. The family will stand to lose an average of about EGP6,000 up to EGP12,000 (USD400 - USD800) per runaway maid if they are not contracted with trusted maids agency. Anyway hiring a none stable maid with this type of cheap contracts can be acceptable only if the maid is well known by the maid agency as well as the same goes to nannies agency.
any employers have discovered much to their dismay that “cheaper” actually turns out to be more costly. Reasons for maids running away include low salary, inability to manage their work responsibilities or attitude problems.
There have been many instances of employers who require maids very urgently. They were willing to employ a maid within 2 days (Yes in Egypt that's how it works). Imagine a family just make a call expecting to hire a maid in 2 days if not in the same day. Such “instant maids” are often not officially trained.
The reasons the instant maids are easily available include the following:
i) These “maids” are on loan from someone to work temporarily for someone else. This is completely illegal and will put you under legal responsibility in case of opened investigation.
ii) Most of the runaway maids in Egypt came in for visit. They are categorized as tourists and not permitted to work. But since maids agencies are able to fix their status so they contract with maid agencies in order to apply for work permit. Most of families don't pay the enough amount for the process, so the application is always on hold and the lack rules make it okay for having a maid working with a family during the application provided by the maid agency is in hold.
iii) And in rare cases these “maids” their applications to the immigration or embassy to renew their visas have been rejected at all possibly because they have entered the country illegally. (We didn't recognize any maid agency provide them jobs, but we noticed that social media might be a place for them to search for a job somewhere with low class families who don't care about their backgrounds whether they are good or criminals.
