I have a question. I am a nanny for a family with one child. I love my job and the family I work for treats me very well. However, there is one area of concern. The child has been sick with a mild cold and MB wanted to stay home with him. Ok, no problem. But now I'm being told that she wants to stay home with him all week and that I will not be compensated for this week. This leaves me with zero income for this week. I have been a nanny for several families over the past 7 years and have always been paid for things like this. Things that are beyond my control. We do have a contract but it only covers my sick days. Any thoughts on this matter?
