Two women and a man are accused of human trafficking in Sydney after allegedly employing an Indonesian maid who worked for years in 'reprehensible' conditions and was not allowed to return home.

Police say the trio employed the 26-year-old maid in their Sydney residences from July 2014, with the woman working significant hours without remuneration.

She was in the country illegally from August 2014 and was not allowed access to her passport or to return home, according to the Australian Federal Police.
