How do you get your maid to respect you

Here are some tips to keep your maid happy and get them to respect you: do not overwork them; ask them every day how they are feeling and listen to their needs; surprise them with a small gift every now and then if you have the means to; keep an open line of communication with them when it comes to work expectations; and make them feel like they’re a part of your family while still maintaining a professional relationship.
