I'm trying to come up with a draft contract for a nanny who will be watching our son one day a week for the next 5 months. There is a possibility (if I get this other PT job I'm thinking about) that we might need her for 2 full days for that 5 month time period. There's also a possibility that we might need her for longer than the 5 months (though she is set to finish her schooling in 9 - 10 months, at which point she'd seek FT employment elsewhere).
Do I pay her if we have to cancel on short notice because of illness?
If she's going to be driving, I'm OK buying a carseat for her car but I'm guessing she's not going to want it in there all the time, do I install it at the beginning of each day? Seems like a pain and I wish she could just use our car, but I'll need it to get to work.
Sick time for her? I'm leaning towards no because she'd accrue it so slowly that she would barely get to a full day by the time the 5 months was over.
We are paying her at the top of what she said she was looking for ($14/hr). She's got a fair amount of experience with older kids but very little experience with toddler age (and none of it recent). She's getting her Masters in Ed in a Montessori program so she had a lot of school knowledge, but again with older kids. So I feel like less "benefits" are ok since we are paying her more but what do you think?
