Salary vs Hourly
Hey, I need help from the nannys out there. I am a nanny of five plus years and I am soon to be starting with a new family with one newborn, no house work. The hours would be unpredictible due to the nature of their jobs. They have offered me the option of being paid salaried at 2500 month plus overtime (time and a half - 15.63 + 7.81 = 23.45 an hour) for any hours over 160 per month or I could do hourly at 15.63 an hour plus over time for any hours over 40 a week. They aren't sure yet what her schedule will be when she goes back to work, but they seem to think (or were trying to give me the impression) that she will only be working between 60-80 hours a month and they won't need me when she isn't working. However I have been doing this long enough (and I am sure many of you have had this happen) to know that's what they all say in the beginning and gradually hours are added. I have seen a lot of people on here frustrated and feeling taken advantage of, and saying that their bosses want them to make up hours or not getting paid when mom and dad are late. So my question is this - which is better, salaried or hourly?
Also we are using breedlove to handle taxes, does anyone know if breedlove will allow them to not pay OT for hours over 40 in a week? I have always been paid legally but just never used them before.
