Domestic Help in Nepal

Domestic employees are commonly employed in Kathmandu. Staff may include a cook (didi), housekeeper, gardener (mali), nanny, driver (if you do not wish to risk the local traffic yourself), and day/night guard. You may choose to take over the staff that worked for the previous occupant of your house or find your own staff. I

n addition to basic wages (currently $80-$100 per month for an experienced cook, less for housekeepers, gardeners, or nannies), extras might include uniforms (usually some form of local dress), a food allowance, a bonus equivalent to one month's salary before the Dasain holidays (the largest Hindu celebration of the year, usually in October), medical expenses, transportation, and various other discretionary benefits. Be clear up front about what extras you will and will not pay. It is common for servants to request loans from employers. Employers do not universally agree and repayment arrangements vary for those that do.
