I have a foreign worker as a cleaner under my company which does hotel services. She is legal and last year she went back home to Philippines because her 12 year old son was ill. After seven months of leave end of March she came back to continue working for me. Her permit expires this June end.

April she told me she could be pregnant and the self test confirmed her pregnancy. She told me that she needs her job and wants to abort the baby after she discussed with her husband. The Dilation and curettage (D&C) was properly done on the 23rd of April.

On the 20th of May I had taken her for medical under FOMEMA for her permit renewal. However, the the urine still revealed that she was pregnant. I had appeal with the doctor's report that she had properly undergone a D&C and attached the proof of her passport that she had gone back to Philippines and that is how she got pregnant. FOMEMA had asked me to appeal to Kementerian Kesihatan and I formally appealed with the same proofs.

I want to know the chances of approval and how long it will take and if I could further appeal or request for another medical.

My worker needs this job so much as she just got her older daughter enrolled at a college in Philippines. Her case is genuine and I like to help her as an employer.

Do the test again before expiry to see if there are still traces of pregnancy. It will be rejected as long the the FOMEMA failed on this point. You do not have to worry. If you have made an application to renew, it will be in the Immigration System. You can apply for a "Special Pass" of 30 days for the extension to complete the medical test. Funny though.. experienced doctors have the means to mask this "leftovers". The Indonesians are good at it, within 3 weeks.. maybe herbal drinks..

The proofs you have tendered is not valid. The final proof is no trace of pregnancy. Appeal is of no use. Only appeal with medical test negative results is entertained.

Act wisely in this matter.

If something goes wrong you can be accused of forcing your worker to do a D&C against her wish.
