Nanny pay for missed work days

Posted on by Deborah | in Q & A

Q: How much should I ask for inclement weather pay? It wasn’t discussed during the interview but I need to pay my bills! I missed 4 days last week due to a hurricane. What’s the best way to ensure fairness to both of the parents and the nanny?

A: It is important to have a contract or employment agreement before starting a job. If the employer was unable to get to work because in weather conditions but is paid for their time then you should be paid for your time.

It is difficult to anticipate every possible scenario, but it is a good idea to discuss how these situations will be handled before hand. Since you are now bridging this after the fact, the best you can do is ask your employer if you will be paid for the time that you were unable to get to work.
