'The right of God upon his servants is that they worship him and they don't worship ...

First note that maids or any kinds of employees are non-mahrams so you shouldn't be alone with them if you are of the opposite gender (based on ahadith like this in Jami' at-Tirmidhi.
Secondly I'd like to remind you of the hadith of Anas ibn Malik () -who served our prophet () as a kid-:
