A union says it's helped an underpaid migrant worker escape the Auckland house where she worked as a domestic servant for a several years.
FIRST Union says the woman came to its migrant workers' network asking for help to leave the house where she was living.
They did and Union spokesman Robert Reid says she is now back in the Philippines.
He says she was very nervous and asked that her case was not publicised till she was safe.
Mr Reid says an employment grievance is being taken on her behalf, for unpaid wages, and the lack of sick and holiday pay.
