Like her mom Gloria Diaz, Isabelle Daza considers her helpers an integral part of her household.

Here's Baby Baltie and Yaya Luning, who has been with Isabelle's family’s for years

And to make sure that she has a long-term relationship with them, she came up with a detailed contract enumerating the helpers' "tungkulin at gawain," work hours, days off, and "benepisyo," among others.


Posting a copy of the contract on her Instagram Stories, the celebrity mom wrote, "So I decided to create a contract for my helpers at home… to show their job description… and their rights as an employee.

"This is also so they know they cannot get fired over simple mistakes."

A provision stated that "they can’t borrow money or advance (unless it’s an emergency)."

The contract was written in Filipino.


Part of their daily tasks: Clean all the rooms and gym area.

Isabelle also mentioned the helpers' other benefits including paid leaves, meals, hygiene products, towels, and uniforms, among others.

She added, "This will help them feel secure and proud to keep a job and protect both parties.

"Giving them enough rest days (like the weekends)… and in return of course they do a job well done."


She also put a clause on confidentiality, which is essential to celebrities.

It read: "Ipinagbabawal ng Pinaglilingkuran na ipagsiwalat ng kasambahay ang mga pribado at kompidensyal na impormasyon..."

Isabelle wrote that this applies even after the end of the helper's employment with them.

On her Instagram Story, the model-actress mentioned her number one house rule: "...not to reply ‘WALA’ if they haven’t checked or looked everywhere."


She based the contract on Republic Act No. 10361, also known as Domestic Workers Act or Batas Kasambahay, which serves as protection for all domestic workers employed within the country from "abuse, harassment, violence, and economic exploitation."
