priceless as long as i could have one!May 9, 2011 4:23 am at 4:23 am #765424cshapiroMember
if she is an american citizen, do her a favor and give her a w2 not a 1099. it will cost u more but ultimatley its the correct thing to do. I would say 20k if u provide room and bored and 25-30 without…this all depends on the amount of her workload, if she is taking care of the kids, shopping, cooking and cleaning as well as running other errands. vacation days would also be a nice perk, but u can give her six month till u offer that.May 9, 2011 4:53 am at 4:53 am #765425commonsenseParticipant
where’d you find such a treasure?May 9, 2011 12:37 pm at 12:37 pm #765426oomisParticipant
I never used nannies, so I am not so knowledgeable in this area, but it seems to me that even if you give room and board for someone, that should not necessarily mean they ought to earn LESS than if they did not live in. People tend to take more advantage of someone who is already living in the home, expecting them to babysit because they are already there, and the job tends to be more of a 24 hr type than the 9-5 of a non live in. Their housekeeping duties also seem more extensive. I never understood that.May 9, 2011 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #765427mamashtakahMember

I think that the first thing I would need when I I have kids is getting a nanny. Just Joking I would spend the money on cleaning help and I would raise my kids aloneMay 9, 2011 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #765429TheGoqParticipant

@Glatt: I was just wondering if you are married or have male child(ren) over 13, isn’t there the issue of Yichud?
Also, if you do use a W-2 as oppossed to a 1099 find out if you have to pay Unemployment Taxes for the Nanny. Also, check with a labor lawyer and an accountant to make sure what you are doing is on the up-and-up. The IRS don’t play. They are serious.
Will you also expect her to work the major Yom Tovim and if she doesn’t will you pay her for those days off? Will these days off counts towards her vacation days?
cshapiro suggested vacation after 6 months. I would suggest 3. A full-time Nanny position is very hard and exhausting.May 10, 2011 5:38 am at 5:38 am #765431
American citizen, Jewish/Frum, ~55 hours per week, 2-3 children, Monday-Friday, mostly just childcare. What do you think per week?
