The candidates we work with are professionals and expect to be employed by your family legally, the same way someone would anticipate employment in a corporate setting. The practice of paying nannies off the books, often referred to as ‘under the table,’ is increasingly becoming uncommon. This shift is due to heightened scrutiny from the IRS/Tax Authorities regarding such violations. Employing a nanny without adhering to legal requirements can lead to significant tax and legal repercussions for families. It also deprives nannies of essential benefits like unemployment and workers’ compensation. Moreover, nannies paid off the books face challenges in verifying their income, which can be a significant hurdle when they need to apply for housing rentals, mortgages, student loans, or car loans.
