I am currently a full time nanny for two children ages 2 and four. The four year old goes to morning preschool 3 days a week. The two year old is under my care from 8-4pm. The mother is getting a divorce and this in turn is wreaking havoc on the children- the 4 year old girl more than the younger boy.
This is my first out of the house job in 20 years, so I'm out of touch with current nanny trends as far as pay, sick pay and vacations go. I'm in Silicon Valley, and get paid 18$ an hour, but get no sick pay, vacation pay or benefits. Is this legal? I have a wicked cold, but continue to work when I'd rather be home and in bed. I'm constantly getting sick because of a little girl being in preschool . Fact of life but oh well.
I did not research nannies in San Jose, but at the time I was lucky to find a job after being a stay at home mom for 20 years . Thank you in advance for any help you can give me .
