HRSD Ministry launches insurance service for domestic workers

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (HRSD) launched an insurance service on its Musaned platform for contracts of new domestic workers. 

 

 

 

As of Feb. 1, 2024, the insurance service will cover the first two years of the contract, then it will be optional for the employer after the two years, the ministry said in a statement. 

 

 

 

The service is now available for Musaned users, having been introduced to them at the beginning of 2023, with over 175,000 users opting for it. 

 

 

 

The service compensates both the employer and domestic worker in various cases, starting from the first day of work. 

 

 

 

Notable benefits provided to employers through this service include reimbursement for recruitment-related expenses in the event of a worker's absence, escape, death, inability to work, or the onset of chronic illnesses that impair their performance. 

 

 

 

Furthermore, the service covers expenses associated with body repatriation, personal belongings, and property in case of domestic worker's death. 

 

 

 

Additionally, the service ensures the protection of domestic worker's rights. This encompasses compensation for total or partial permanent disability resulting from an accident and compensation in case the employer fails to pay salaries and financial entitlements due to his death or total/partial permanent disability.
