i am a live in nanny and do not have a fixed schedule and am paid a certain amount per wk. I end up babysitting 3 children about 12 hours a day. Some of this time is not actual labor but time where I am available and supervising children. When we interviewed, hourly wage was not discussed, only job duties and weekly pay. I would like my own time as well for my personal life. Should I have an hourly paid schedule?? and should I be paid over time even though an hourly wage was not discussed in the interview?? summer is coming up, and I'm afraid I may be expected to be available from sunrise to sunset for the kids. Help please!
Hi, sorry I was unable to reply sooner... they really got me working hard here :/ I hope its not too late to rate your answer and for you to get credit.
I will admit Im still somewhat unsure of what to do. Im afrad to lose my job if I confront the issue. Im not paying rent or food plus getting paid so I feel obligated to work at any time that they need me. That cant be right though.
My main question, am I entitled to ask for a start and cut off time where I am NOT available for them if they need me? EVEN THOUGH i live in their house???
I already rated it..why am I getting asked to rate it again
No problem. thx again for your assistance. Im trying to stir up the courage inside of me to confront the issue with my bosses :/
