Q. Your Nanny has just requested to take 4 weeks holiday, go on Maternity leave, has lost her driving license and needs 2 weeks off sick. What do you do?
A. Turn to your NannyPaye contract of employment.
A contract of Employment is not only a legal necessity but also a useful third party to fall back on when any employment issues arise between you and your nanny.
In our experience parents without a contract almost never set down items such as Holiday Pay, maternity pay, sick pay, notice period etc. with their nanny and it almost always leads to bad feeling at some time in the term of her employment.
At NannyPaye we provide a personalised contract specifically written for you and your nanny for £24.99. This contract has all of the Statutory minimum requirements and gives you the best possible start with your nanny.
It allows you to agree in advance items such as when holiday can be taken, what happens if your nanny is sick and how much notice each party has to give providing a much more certain environment for both employee and employer.
By law, an employer is required to give all employees who have been in employment for at least one month, written details of the employee`s main particulars of employment.
New regulations came into force on 1 October 2002 which prevent fixed term employees being treated less favorably than similar permanent employees. This means that employers must give the same terms and conditions of employment, such as holiday entitlement and pensions, to fixed term nannies as to permanent nannies, unless any difference in treatment can be objectively justified.
All details of the employee's particulars of employment must be given to the employee not later than two months after he/she starts work.
