Would You Pay Your Nanny In Case Of A Natural Disaster?
Would you pay your nanny if a natural disaster hit your area? Monday I received an email from a nanny agency in this area asking me how I got paid during hurricane Ike. They sent me an email today with the poll results: 80% said wages were unaffected, 10% said wages would be somewhat reduced, 10% said no wages were paid during the time not worked.
Some families chose to pay a full wage but not pay the normal gas allowance since no driving was done. Some nannies worked a weekend in exchange for their normal scheduled days. One family had their nanny stay at their house during the storm's aftermath.
I ended up missing 7 days all together and my boss paid me for the entire time minus gas money (which is understandable) So what would you do? Would you pay your nanny the full amount? Half pay? Work out something else?
