Received Wednesday, July 2, 2008 - Perspective & Opinion
Hi, I am a nanny for a great family in NYC. I been with this family for 4 yrs. They have 2 children. They have a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old. I have children of my own. I have a son that is 8 and a daughter that is 10. My children attend an after school program. My children come with me for 20 minutes in the am while they are waiting for the bus. Every once in awhile they will come in for the day. When it is the last day of school before summer camp etc .....
I work 10 hrs a day. They run late a lot from anywhere from 10 minutes to 3-4 hrs late.
In my original contract we agreed on comp time for any over time I did. Now they are saying because my children come with me that counts for any extra time I am there. So they think I shouldn't get the comp time just work over and deal with it basically.
So how do I deal with this????? They offered for my children to come there. Once in awhile I will ask if they can come one day here or there. My children are in school full time and they go to summer camp also. I do babysit here or there at night and I do not charge them. So what is the standard with nannies and their kids??????
