CLIFTON PARK, NY – June 19, 2020 – GTM Payroll Services, the nation’s leader in nanny tax and payroll services for families that hire someone to work in their homes, has partnered with NannyTraining.com on a new certificate program for nannies called Getting it Right! Tax and Payroll Compliance for Nannies.
It is the first tax compliance course for nannies and outlines what they need to know when it comes to being paid legally.
“With the current health crisis, more and more nannies now understand the necessity of being paid legally to receive paid leave benefits and unemployment insurance,” said GTM Payroll Services Founder and CEO Guy Maddalone. “By partnering with a leader in nanny education like NannyTraining.com, we hope to add clarity around legal pay especially the benefits it affords not only nannies but the families they work for as well.”
Modules of the course cover topics like:
- Why nannies are employees and not independent contractors
- Paying employees an hourly rate and a not a salary
- How do guaranteed hours work
- Why banking hours is illegal
- Benefits of being paid on the books for nannies and families
- And more.
“A nanny doesn’t have an HR department to turn to about workplace matters so often times they need to educate themselves and their employers on compliance issues like legal pay,” said NannyTraining.com Lead Educator and Founder Michelle LaRowe. “Thanks to the expertise of GTM Payroll Services, this course will help nannies better understand the topic and be able to advocate for themselves when speaking with potential employers.”
Specialized nanny training can help in-home caregivers understand the unique role that they play in a household and work more effectively as private childcare providers. Working as a nanny requires a different approach to childcare than those taken by other caregivers.
By expanding their knowledge base, nannies may be able to increase their earning potential. According to the International Nanny Association Salary and Benefits Survey, a greater level of education and experience correlates to a higher hourly wage rate.
Nannies can take the new course online and receive a certificate to add to their nanny portfolio. Each nanny’s certificate will also include a digital download on tax and payroll responsibilities that caregivers can share with their employers.
