Question!? paid vacation for nanny
hello, is it reasonable or inapropriate for a cash paid full time live out nanny to request paid vacation, paid sick days, and paid holidays? Please tell me your thoughts.
It sounds good but I don't think so!
if you consider her as an employee-yes, if you would consider her as an independent contractor- you don't have to pay while she is on vacations or holidays
If she only works for you and you determine the hours, location, and how she does her job then she is an employee and not an independent contractor.
right, if you tell her what to do and what hours to work, She would be considered as an w-2 employee and you have to withhold her taxes
Hello, I feel that it's reasonable, as long as everything is going to be written for the employee and yourself. If you think about it the full-time live out nanny may have a doctor appointment here and there, or might get sick and have to leave work early or call in. I wouldn't think it's fair for an employee that's sick have to work with a child because they feel they cannot afford to lose pay. If the Nanny has been working faithfully for a long time and she is very dedicated and doesn't just call off work for nonsense reason then I would say go for it with rules so it want become abuse and backfire on you. I hope this info help you make a reasonable and fair decision. Have a bless night:)
She can ask for anything. You two need to negotiate what is reasonable. As she is full time I think one week paid vacation after one year of employmentioned is fair. I would give the seven major holidays off, or pay her time and a half if she works them. I would offer one paid health day per year employed to be maxed at 5 days. These could be used any way she wants. They do not roll over. This may not be customary for nannies, but a mutually respectful relationship is mutually benificial. I would want to treat my employee faily, keep her happy and motivated, and around for years.
