Worker’s Compensation–An Often Overlooked Aspect of Household Employment

A frustrated, upset child, or child with learning difficulties.By: HomePay Provided by Breedlove

Workers’ compensation insurance is a unique part of the household employment hiring checklist. It’s not tied to the payroll and tax process, but can have a dramatic impact on a family’s finances. The following incident is a prime example of why families need to inquire about workers’ compensation before their household employee starts her first day of work.

The Situation

A family in Tennessee hired a nanny to take care of their 2 kids. The family lived near the park in their neighborhood, so it was part of the nanny’s daily routine to take the kids there and let them have some play time outdoors. Unfortunately, only 3 weeks into the job, the nanny hurt herself while playing with one of the kids and was unable to walk back to the family’s home. She was able to call the mother who quickly drove to the park, picked up the nanny and the kids and took the nanny to the emergency room.

The nanny’s doctor informed her that it would be unsafe for her to care for the family’s children for 3 weeks while she recovered. Between the emergency room visit, x-ray, MRI, arthroscopic surgery and 12 recommended rehabilitation sessions, the total cost of her care came to approximately $8,800. To make matters worse, the hospital informed the nanny that her insurance company refused to pay for her treatment because it was a work-related injury. The nanny and the family were both confused about what to do.

The Law

The majority of states require household employers to purchase a workers’ compensation policy to assist their employee with medical bills and lost wages if they are sick or injured on the job. Even if workers’ compensation isn’t required in a family’s state, they can still be held liable for the value of their employee’s lost wages and medical bills in a work-related incident. Many families mistakenly believe their homeowner’s insurance umbrella policy is sufficient for coverage. However, these policies are written for “guest workers” (i.e. a painter or plumber doing a short-term project) and do not cover an in-home employee.

Note: In California, a homeowner’s insurance policy will cover a household employee provided they work 20 hours or less. If the employee works more than this, a rider must be purchased to provide adequate coverage.

The Outcome

Since Tennessee is not a state that requires household employers to have workers’ compensation for a nanny, the family didn’t break any employment laws. However, since the nanny’s insurance company refused to pay for her medical bills, the family was stuck with the $8,800 bill – plus another $1,800 to pay their nanny for the 3 weeks of work she had to miss. In order to save a little money when their nanny was recovering, both parents used vacation time from their own job to watch their kids until their nanny returned to work. The family now has a workers’ compensation policy – which costs them a little under $500 a year to protect them in case another accident occurs.

This case illustrates why it’s a good idea for families to purchase workers’ compensation, even it’s not required by their state. This family unfortunately made a $9,000 mistake – largely because they weren’t informed about workers’ compensation during the hiring process. Had they received a thorough consultation from an expert like HomePay, we could have eliminated this risk. You can easily imagine a scenario where a household employee is injured on the job worse than this family’s nanny. The resulting medical bills could be 2 or 3 times more expensive, which could cripple a family’s finances.

The #1 Most Requested Nanny Job Description

familyassistantDo you know the #1 most requested type of nanny we hear about day in and day out? It’s the Family Assistant. What is a Family Assistant you ask?  A Family Assistant is a nanny who is also an assistant to the parent/s or household manager.   She provides another pair of hands to assist busy parents with creating a safe and nurturing environment for their children and the management of the household.  Why is this so popular? The more both parents work, and the busier our lives get, the more help a family needs.  This job is typically with school age children (but can include younger children), and is usually about a 60/40 balance of household duties and childcare.  Theses jobs usually range between 30-40 hours/week.

Summertime in Seattle

Greenlake-Seattle-Q: Can you provide me with a list of fun and educational places that families (and nannies) can take their children to around the Seattle area? Now that the weather is starting to cooperate, I would love to get out and about more.

A: Yes! Field trips aren’t just for school groups with a teacher and 20-30 children. Many places around Seattle offer learning experiences for individual families and/or smaller groups as well. Parent Map has put together a great list of 10 “Do-It-Yourself” field trip locations including The Burke Museum, the Museum of History & Industry, and even Theo Chocolate Factory in Fremont. Descriptions include helpful pricing information as well!

Another great resource I found for families and nannies is the YMCA of Greater Seattle’s blog. It offers 15 fantastic (almost ALL outdoor!) locations around (but not limited to) Seattle. Five of the recommendations were just added to the list last year, ensuring us that the information is current and relevant. Some are old favorites- but places you might not have thought about for a while- and others are tucked away in places with names you may not recognize.

April’s Nanny of the Month is…

FB_IMG_1430406175947….Jasmine Giles! We’ve worked with Jasmine since 2012 placing her in long-term, short-term, and on-call positions. She is an all around sweetheart and we are happy to have her on our team.  Her newest long-term family says she’s already part of the family!

When asked something funny a child recently said to her, Jasmine had this to say:

“We are teaching  the 2.5 year old I nanny to blow on her food to cool it down  if it’s hot. The meal came out and she said “Jazzy make sure you blow first” After I did to cool down her food she said, “Good job Jazzy!” I love how she is learning and told me good job like I always tell her!”

Congratulations Jasmine and Thank you!

Jordan Monasmith…Nanny of the Month for March 2015!

IMG_2821

Congratulations to Jordan Monasmith, our Nanny of the Month for March!  Jordan is a permanent nanny who came to us in July of last year.  We were excited about her variety of experience working with children.  Jordan had recently worked as a children’s speech therapist in the Bremerton School District when she came to us and previously as a nanny and preschool teacher.

We found a great family for Jordan who is absolutely over the top about her.  Mom shared that,” Jordan is amazing!  She’s everything we wanted in a nanny”.

Jordan’s favorite quote from her charges is when the little sister (4yrs) was talking about her older brother (7 yrs); she said “Well, I think my brother can do it, he can already read AND crack an egg!”

In her spare time you will find Jordan loving her dog Tank who is a 9 month old Frug, spending time with friends and attempting DIY projects.
