Omission of Medical Condition Causes Opposition
Ok so I need advice. I have worked on and off as a nanny for 5 years now. Most of the families I have worked for have been delightful and I have never really had any problems. A few years ago I got a live in position for two adorable little girls. Before I started working I had many phone conversations with the mom, I sent references and I am sure the family also did a background check in which everything came out fine.
I started working for the family and then one weekend when I went to see some friends for the day, the father went through all my belongings. I had been on some medication (none which affected my job or mood whatsoever) but I didn't feel the need to tell the family because they never asked of any medical conditions. I had carefully placed the medication in place where it was safe and no one would be able to find it unless they were looking for something. I was immediately let go. I never felt so disrespected in my life. They didn't even bother to ask me anything, just said that they could no longer work with me. Has anyone ever had a family go through all their things without their knowledge? Isn’t this considered a HUGE invasion of privacy? - Anonymous
