With the threat of bad weather, it is important for employers and employees to understand where they stand with regards to pay. There are options available and I have inserted a great piece of advice from Acas or speak with your payroll company Way2paye who will help and advice. With over 20 years’ experience in the industry my best advice is Communication between family and employer before it happens. Keep warm and keep safe in adverse weather conditions. If the snow does come enjoy.
- If a parent has the day off due to travel problems and your nanny has to travel then paying them is a gesture of kindness
- Parent working from home: Good to ask the nanny in, or you won’t get any work done! with the children at home. However, it would be good to give the nanny shorter hours that day so their travelling is not so stressful.
- If the parent must take unpaid leave and your nanny can’t come in then see if they are willing to negotiate some time back. i.e.: time if you need to go to a meeting which extends the nannies time or maybe a babysitting session.
- Always be considerate to one another in these circumstances
