Nanny Contracts

New York First State to Regulate Nanny Relationship

Uncle Sam may soon be regulating your relationship with your nanny! In a bill that was passed this week, New York will be the first state that requires employers to guarantee paid days off, overtime wages and 14 days termination notice for all domestic workers. California and Colorado are also working on similar legislation. Eight-five percent of LilSugar readers said that parents should have a written contract with their nanny outlining such details before the relationship ever begins, but 53 percent don't pay their caregivers' taxes. Should the government be regulating terms of employment for childcare givers?

The question's a bit off as the government already regulates employment for childcare givers. Nannies, for example, are treated as non-exempt employees. That means they're subject to wage and work hour laws. It's good to see that 85% figure about written nanny contracts -- parents looking for a good one might want to check out http://www.mynannycontract.com/nanny-contract or ask their attorney or placement agency.
