Employment Contracts

It is important to us to do all we can to help our clients and their nannies maintain a healthy, happy working relationship.

Contracts of Employment are a significant part of the employment process and ensuring there is one in place before any work begins goes a long way to settling potential disputes later on in the employment relationship.

The contract is a legally binding employment agreement that oblige both employers and nanny to keep to the terms of employment spelled out in it. These terms can of course be changed at any time by mutual agreement. All employees are entitled to have one within 8 weeks of starting their job and a sensible employer will not hesitate to provide one. 

The Nannytax Contract

Nannytax HR will create a bespoke contract for you and your nanny once you complete our Contract Request Form. You will be able to access the Contract Request Form, Employment Handbook, Guidance Factsheets, forms and checklists, from the HR Portal. Login details for the HR Portal will be sent in your Nannytax Welcome Email. If any specific contract clauses are required, such as confidentiality clauses for example, Nannytax HR will be able to advise and tailor the contract to your specific needs.
