Find me on:

Nannies_and_Overtime-_Just_the_Facts_(1)There’s all kinds of advice floating around out there about how to handle a nanny’s wages. Here, we’ve included only the facts on nannies and overtime:

Nannies ARE

  • Considered non-exempt employees. This means they are paid HOURLY, and are never true salaried employees.
  • Entitled to overtime pay (for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week)*
  • Can be protected from wrongful discharge, breach of employment contracts (the court ruled that a two year work agreement was enforceable), and be entitled to file unpaid wage claims

A written nanny work agreement protects both the family and the nanny. HWS can help. Download our tips on how to write the nanny work agreement and take a look at our sample nanny work agreement.
