Q: Can we keep non Muslim servent for our daily domestic work at home?

A. A certain degree of Hijaab must be observed with female domestics such as: not being alone with them, not talking to them directly except in the presence of a Mahram, and even asking them to dress modestly.
If the maid is an elderly woman then the Hijaab law will be relaxed

And Allah knows best
