Domestic Help in Belize

Most expatriate households have a maid, though experienced and trained servants are difficult to find. Domestic workers typically do not live in, and work 6 to 8 hours per day. The legal minimum wage for domestics is Bz$2.25 per hour. Overtime is paid for extra hours. Employers pay Social Security tax for all domestics who work over 23 hours per week. Maids do routine cleaning, laundry and child care, and may speak Spanish and/or English. Night babysitting and help at parties requires overtime pay. Hours and fringe benefits should be agreed upon at time of employment.
