This depends on the type of job you accept through our agency.
Nannies and sitters on our Flex Team are employed by the agency. Benefits of employee-status include competitive hourly pay, coverage under our extensive liability insurance and workers compensation policies, ongoing training and support, working on a team and more.
If you are matched with a family in our Placement Division, you will become an employee of the family. Our agency educates families on industry legal issues and makes it clear to family employers that the IRS considers nannies to be W2 employees, not independent contractors. We help the family uphold industry standards and comply with laws surrounding employment to help ensure that you are being treated fairly.
We are super thorough but our team is motivated to get you on our team as soon as possible. You can start orientation as soon as 2-3 days post-interview or up to two weeks depending on how long it takes to reach your references.
Absolutely not. Clients pay our fees in full. We do require our applicants to pay for their CPR/First Aid training if they aren’t already certified and we also ask that on boarding Flex team members pay for their drug test up front but we reimburse you after 90-days of employment.
We widely define professional experience to include supervised volunteer work with children in a church, non-profit or other setting. We also accept any paid babysitting work as long as it is not for family. Anyone who has observed or supervised you in the aforementioned environment, may serve as a professional reference.
