Minimum pay for domestic workers now KES 10,000

06 July 2015, 18:58 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The new minimum pay for domestic workers is now KES 10,000 after the government gazetted new guidelines on their pay structure.

The new minimum wage for the domestic workers will now be KES 10,954 per month up from the previous KES 9,781, according to newly gazetted regulations.

Acting Labour Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo said Monday that it was a must the regulations be adhered to with those failing to facing jail time or huge fines.

The legal notice issued by Omamo awards the domestic workers in major towns like Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu a 12 percent salary increment.

This follows President Uhuru Kenyatta awarding the workers on minimum wage the increase during Labour Day celebrations May 1 this year.

" This order may be cited as Regulations of Wages(General) (Amendment) Order 2015 and shall be deemed to have come into operations on the 1st of May 2015," part of the notice read.

Cleaners, sweepers, gardeners, nannies, house servants, day watchmen and messengers will benefit from the new rule. Those working in rural areas though will earn a minimum wage of KES 5,844.

Drivers, printing machine operators, bakery machine operators, shop assistants, table hand bakery or confectionery and copy typists will now qualify to earn a minimum of KES 14,785 per month.

Miners, stone cutters, turn boys, waiters and cooks will earn a minimum of KES 11,381, with cashiers and drivers of heavy commercial vehicles earning a minimum of KES 24,719.

Failure to honour the new rules will attract a jail term of three months or a fine of KES 50,000 or both to ward off those potentially thinking of not adhering to the new rules.
