The Importance of Guaranteed Hours
Nannies, much like any other workers, need to be able to rely on a steady income that they can predict, and need to be paid for 52 weeks a year. Guaranteed hours means that any time the parents do not require the nanny, whether it be due to the parents having an extra day off work one week or an extra week of vacation per year, the nanny is still paid what they were promised in terms of guaranteed hours. This is because the nanny is able and willing to work, and through no fault of their own, will not be working in that given time frame. We strongly recommend providing guaranteed hours for your employee, and it is the industry standard as well.
