Domestic Help in Bolivia

Almost all expatriates find domestic employees to be a helpful addition to daily life. A combination cook/housekeeper is generally sufficient for a couple with one or two children in a small house. Many foreigners with more than two children employ a cook and a general housekeeper or a nanny. A house with a garden needs a part-time gardener.

Salaries for domestic employees are reasonable. The employer provides meals, uniforms, toiletries, and, if applicable, lodging for live-in employees. Local law requires an extra month’s pay as Christmas bonus, making 13 monthly salaries annually. Domestic employees are entitled to 15 days of paid vacation per year. If mutually acceptable, extra pay may be given in lieu of vacation.

It is the norm that all expatriates direct-hire and contract personnel must provide healthcare coverage for all domestic employees, part-time and full-time, before those employees begin their first day of work. The Bolivian Caja Nacional de Salud is the insurance that most employers obtain for their domestic employees.
Employees vary in efficiency and dependability.

During a 3-month probationary period, employees may be terminated without notice or compensation. After this period, they are entitled to receive payment of social benefits in accordance with local labour law. All employees are encouraged to sign a work contract.
