i hired a nanny through a cl agency. she was already having throat irritation & dry cough when arrived. day 2 brought her to poly clinic as her cough turns phelgmy. as malaysian total bill was $46.45.spoke to agency & they mentioned she was fine on arrival, & if sick they'll inform the appointed employer if we're fine. but we told agency she confessed already having throat irritation b4 she arrives to start her task thus the agency was not refunding the poly clinic fee stating mom's regulation of employer paying for worker's medical bill. like this all can just take advantage of us bringing them to doc even if they don't disclose they're sick b4 arrival, right.advice needed esp those who hired cl who fell sick. tia

I think the issue here is not so much about the medical fee but rather the impact of having someone sick to care for a newborn and the mother in confinement. You should highlight to the agency that this is unacceptable and they should be obliged to provide a replacement.
In any case, I believe you can bring up the issue to the relevant authority so that they will keep the said agency in check.
