Do I Need To Offer Contract To Domestic Cleaner?

Yes you do, it can be a verbal contract if the arrangement is short term, for no more than 4 weeks. In writing as of 4 weeks. If the employee works less than 60 hours a month for an employer and he doesn´t have any other employees, they can agree that the employee arranges for the ´altas y bajas´ with the Seguridad Social his/herself, but employer needs to sign for consent in advance.

The Seguridad Social have published an informative leaflet on the subject.
