Domestic Help in Nicaragua

Domestic help includes drivers, gardeners, baby-sitters and maids. Live-in help is entitled to room, board, and three uniforms, in addition to a salary. Live-out help receives only salary and sometimes uniforms. The first month of employment is a trial period for both employer and employee. Either party can then terminate employment for any reason without incurring additional legal obligations. A work contract with employees is not required, but recommended. As a precaution against burglars, it is advisable to have at least one employee or family member home at all times.

After each six-month period, domestic employees get 15 days of paid vacation, but most employees prefer double pay (for the 15 days) in lieu of time off. In December, local law requires the payment of a Christmas bonus equal to a month's salary.
