She`s not entitled to one...has to be with you for at least a year....BUT if you feel she works hard, never stays out and listens to you then give her R500.
A bonus is a barometer for work delivered, if you are delighted with her productivity, reward her well and tell her so. If you feel she has been disappointing, think about a hamper of groceries she may find useful over the festive season.
My helper comes in once a week and I give her a list of chores to do each week and she has a list of things that need to be done once a month, he bonus is dependant on whether or not she does everything she is supposed to do. If you want to be fair and she has put in good effort and produces good work, then give her a 13th cheque or you can pro rata it like we do at our company for performance bonuses
Mine has been with me for nearly 5 years and comes in twice a week, I give her an extra months salary in December as a bonus. Ask her if she would like a bonus or should you buy her groceries. Some prefer the extra money and some groceries. Mine took groceries the fiorst year and then from the second wanted the money, which to me is just more convenient.
half a month's salary
Louise has been with me for 5 years. She has never taken a holiday. Does not want to go to Zim, but works so hard. Even if I get nothing, she is worth gold to me, and her husband Sam, and Joshua. Easy....double wages. She insists on going to Hermanus to take care of my Dad...who also adores her.
Equal to one month's salary
If the matter of a bonus in not addressed in the contract, you as the employer decide what (and if) to give, based on work performance, attendance, quality of work etc. A bonus is not calculated.
Put yourself in her position, then decide.
Pro Rata to one month's salary per annum.
Just imagine if you were her..and she was you. Imagine how much trust has been exchanged in 3 months. Imagine if you did her job and how nice it would be for her to be able to afford to treat you to some Xmas 'specials'. Remember the spirit of giving....and what Xmas is all about.
One month of income derived from working for you
Just pay her double and a bit...put yourself in her position. Give with love and receive then as well
Waste of money. Buy her a few papsakke and a packet of peanuts and condoms!
Whatever your heart feels.
i go double or buy her stuff ,however they need the moeny as they go to their homeland normally
I had the same problem last year, i paid just short of double (rounded it off) and then gave her a hamper (buy from makro)
On a calculator ! Silly ! Or Japanese Brain ! Computer, I-pad, Your -pad, I-phone, my-phone, your-phone, Abacus, or made to measure Slide rule !
If she has performed well and up to your standards, then you, only you, decide if she is worth paying half her monthly wages as a bonus or top it up with groceries that would equal the amount due to her. Also remember that she has a family she has to feed and anything you give will help. I give my domestic helper a bonus equal to a month's salary plus I buy her groceries and those little extra's like Christmas Crackers and gifts that would make that family remember that Christmas is a time of giving.
