36歲的John Izekor和29歲的Precious Izekor對他們的管家和保姆的移民身份一無所知，並拒絕歸還她的護照或向她支付約定的費用。
John Izekor, 36, and Precious Izekor, 29, kept their housekeeper and nanny in the dark about her immigration status and refused to return her passport or pay her an agreed rate.
The Izekors have an address in Ashmount Gardens in Lisburn, although Belfast Crown Court heard they had recently been forced to move after their home was attacked.
The judge sentenced the couple to two years in prison, which has been suspended for two years.
Their victim, a 33-year-old who had lived with them in Castlereagh Place in east Belfast, was forced to work without proper payment.
When she came to the UK her employers had promised the Home Office that she would be paid a much higher rate.
It was made clear in court the woman was not trafficked or a modern slave and she was never physically assaulted.
When a Home Office official visited the house in Belfast to speak to her, he was lied to and sent away without being able to see the victim.
Hoping to be allowed to stay in the UK, the victim lived and worked with the family with no access to her passport or documents.
