A good domestic worker contract encompasses all the salient terms of employment. Hence, you would not need the intricate set of policies and procedures typically found in business environments.

NOTE: The content herein is the same as in the Business Starter Kit. The same principles apply. When going through these sections, have in mind that this is more comprehensive and complex than what would generally be needed for lower grade employees. The principles, however, are the same. If you apply the same rigor, you will have a fair and reasonable process and shouldn’t have any undesirable fallout or issues.
