Offering Your Nanny Paid Time Off: A Mutually Beneficial Work Agreement

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on May 7, 2015 4:00:00 PM

Summer is fast approaching, which means many of us are counting down the seconds till our much-needed holidays in the sun. For nannies, though, the summer can be the most stressful time of the year.  It’s simple, really: the benefits of your full-time job that allow you to take paid time off (whether sick leave, personal days, or paid vacation) cannot be taken for granted by a nanny.

As a full-time non-exempt employee of the family, a nanny should be paid for any regularly scheduled day that she is available to work and the family, for any reason, decides they don’t need her. For example, this would include the family’s beach week or Labor Day weekend trip to the in-laws. How does offering this benefit to the nanny help the employer? Paying nannies for any regularly scheduled day when their services are not needed provides a stable income stream for your nanny, and will allow you to employ the best nanny (the best nannies look for the best employers!).  In addition, it is reasonable for the family to ask the nanny to perform routine household tasks—such as pet sitting or organization of kid’s school supplies and clothes—while the family is away (so long as you provide your nanny reasonable notice, of course). Your family may even consider bringing the nanny along on vacation!

We live over whelmed by the Disney-style images of an idealized life, where love stories end when the couple gets married and they “live happily ever after”.  Have you ever questioned what “ever after” really means?  Let me tell you … it means we buy a house, pay bills, and have arguments over the remote control.  Eventually, we become parents, and time seems to start running against us!
