    Regulates the private offices of recruiting Non-Jordanian Domestic Workers.
    Requires employers to purchase insurance from any legally licensed company that will cover the householder (employer) for financial losses resulting from the worker leaving or ‘refusing to work’. In addition, recruiters are bound to replace domestic workers for employers in three circumstances. Firstly, recruiters must replace those who ‘refuse to work’ for their new employer during the first 30 days at no further cost to the householder and on condition that the original recruit is ‘transferred outside of the country’. Secondly, where a migrant worker fails to arrive in Jordan whether by choice or not, recruiters must provide their employer with a replacement domestic worker at no additional cost. Thirdly, the responsible recruiter must also replace a domestic worker if the employer finds her to be pregnant or are otherwise certified as unfit by the Ministry of Health. However, recruiters are not legally responsible for replacing a domestic worker if employers have caused her to leave their employment, such as in cases where they have assaulted the worker.
