Hello!! We are first time parents of an infant and just started hiring a nanny full-time at our apartment. We agreed on a 40-hour salary of 800$/week, i.e. 8 work hours per day (plus she can stay with us, i.e. food and rent are included). Now she had to run some errands, so I took the baby (since I am working from home) during that time. We wanted to introduce a work hours "bank", so when she works less because she runs errands for an hour or so, it goes to the bank, and I can take this hour another day/time. Then our nanny asked about a "lunch hour". So I am asking how are you handling this? Are you paying 1 hour more per day or is the nanny staying 1 hour longer to accommodate for her lunch hour? Our nanny currently works from 9am to 5pm. So with a lunch hour, she'd work from 9-6pm, and I'd have to take the baby for an hour during lunch time? How does that work when I am physically back at work ? I cannot come home to take care of the baby during her lunch hour? Also, as far as I know, lunch hours are not paid? I would appreciate other parents' experiences and advice how to handle that.
Thanks a lot in advance!Jul 16, 2020
