Hi, your contracy with your maid has got off days written for her? Imo you shouldn't let her go overnight. Later something happen you are responsible. If she really wants, you can be nice and let her go 1 day leave on xmas itself and she has to be back before a agreed time. Same for new year. She got to understand she is here to work as a domestic helper. Not any other job . Any other job if something happeb to her, employee responsibility not so big cuz after working hours. Domestic helper is supposed to be our responsibility from the moment we collect her to the moment we send her off at the airport gate.
