Hire Housekeepers and Homemakers Directly Using ICONNEL's Placement Services

Placement Services Average Costs

 

Your total cost varies because you negotiate the wages directly with your potential employee and the agency fee is calculated based on 10% of the mutually agreed-upon wage rate.  The total price range (including agency fees), based on our observation is as follows:

 

Live-in: $143-$209 per day, plus room and board. 

Hourly: $18.70-$22 per hour, minimum 4 hours per day, 5 days per week.

Both rates include agency fees calculated at 10% of the rate listed above.  The employment arrangement with your candidate is considered “hire at will”, so you only pay for what they work.  However, the minimum fees for the agency is based on 4 weeks of employment.  Therefore, if you terminate services with your employee, we can provide you an alternate candidate for consideration, but if you terminate services with the agency completely within the first 4 weeks, we can only credit the unused portion of the agency fees, but not refund them.  Fees are billed perpetually on  a weekly basis after the 4th week in the event that you continue services with us.

 

 

  • The fee covers a continuous employment guarantee by ICONNEL for as long as assistance is required.

  • Service can be stopped any time and continued again depending on client’s changing needs.

  • We will replace your employee for vacation, holidays, weekends, personal days off. (This option is offered only to clients following the new fee schedule).

  • You can request an immediate replacement any time for example: when the employee’s performance is not satisfactory or when you need employee with different qualifications.

  • Weekend replacements: Conditions are as follows: Replacement personnel work between Friday night and Sunday night only. One week’s notice is required in order to provide the weekend relief.

  • Our candidates are introduced based upon their history of reliability in this line of work. You can view complete list of available candidates 24 hors/7days on line: www.iconnel.com or review original records when you visit our office.
