I started with a new family in February after being with my previous Nanny Family for 3.5 years. I'm with one infant girl who is 6 months old. My husband just found out on Friday that he is being transferred for his job back to his home state. We eventually wanted to make this move and overall it's a great move for him and for us, but we didn't know it would happen this soon. He will be transferred in 2 weeks.
I had the intention of staying with my new nanny family for a while, we don't have a contract or anything so there's no agreement between us that I have to work until a certain date or a guideline of notice I have to give. I know standard notice is 2 weeks for most jobs and sometimes I see nannies who give 4 weeks per their contracts.
I'm really nervous to give my notice because they won't see this coming at all and I'm not sure what appropriate notice would be... 2 weeks? 3 weeks? 4 weeks? We have not even gotten to know each other that well since I've only been working for them for a few months.
Input appreciated!! Thanks everyone.
