Maids in Czech Republic (Domestic Help)

Many expatriates employ part-time or full-time domestic help. Waiters and cooks are often employed for representational dinners. Household help is particularly useful for local shopping or various errands if you know there will be a language barrier in local shops.

Qualified personnel are available, but it can sometimes be difficult to find someone who has satisfactory English skills. Minimum wages are set by Czech regulations and are still not high by Western standards. The average price for domestic help is approximately $4.50 per hour.

Many expatriate families hire domestic help through several agencies in Prague. These agencies can provide English-speaking babysitters; housekeepers do not generally speak English well. The agencies set the wage paid to the housekeeper or babysitter, and the domestic help hired through these agencies are responsible for paying their own Social Security tax. Vacations and holidays are negotiated between the family and the help. It is customary to pay the domestic help a bonus at the end of the year.
