Product description

Our solicitor-approved 'Download Now' Domestic/Nanny Employment Contract template will help you to easily get the appointment of domestic staff in writing.

Whether you’re hiring a nanny or other domestic help in England & Wales or Scotland, Lawpack’s Domestic/Nanny Employment Contract template lets you comply with the latest legal requirements of employment law when hiring domestic staff.

When a nanny or domestic help is employed directly by a family, the family, as their employer, will have legal obligations under employment law to those in their domestic employment.

As an employer, you legally must provide a written statement which sets out the main terms and conditions of the nanny or domestic help’s employment.

Broadly, nannies and other domestic helps have the same employment rights as all other employees.

Some terms and conditions of employment of domestic staff and nannies are subject to statutory employment law requirements (e.g. rates of employee pay, working hours, holidays and notice of termination of employment).

But there are some employment rights that nannies and domestic staff don’t have, on the basis that their employer is exempt as a small employer; for example, the National Minimum Wage and access to a Stakeholder Pension.

Lawpack’s Domestic/Nanny Employment Contract download has been approved by employment law solicitors so you can be assured that it’s legally binding and up to date.

This Domestic/Nanny Employment Contract template ensures that you comply with your employer obligations set out by employment law.

  • Commencement
  • Job title and duties
  • Pay
  • Hours of work
