Do i need to have a contract for her?

you always need to have a contract with a domestic worker and should try and register for uif.

you only need to pay UIF if she works more than 24 hours per month - that is 5.5 hours per day, one day a week.
personally i would structure her hours as such - it is really silly to pay UIF if she only works one day a week. However a contract is important - it protects you as much as it protects her. you need to put in a job description, working hours, days and leave etc she would be entitled to., notice periods required etc
Annual leave = 1 day for every 17 days worked
sick leave = 1 day for every 26 days worked
