Employing a nanny - what you need to know
When employing a nanny in the UK you not only have to find the best carer for your children, you also become an employer, and as such you take on a host of responsibilities. For instance, you have to draw up an employment contract with your nanny within 2 months of her starting date and you must also give your nanny a payslip every time you pay her.
In addition you need to have a good understanding of the basics of employment law, because it’s surprisingly easy to make mistakes when you're juggling issues such asholiday entitlement, SSP, benefits in kind, SMP and redundancy pay.
