Complete guide to legally hiring and paying a nanny can help household employers avoid costly non-compliance issues
CLIFTON PARK, NY – May 11, 2017 – Compliance with household employment tax laws grabbed the spotlight once again this year as new administration officials in Washington, D.C. faced the nominating process. Several high-profile nominations were jeopardized because a failure to pay “nanny taxes.”
Updated for 2017, the third edition of How to Hire a Nanny: Your Complete Guide to Finding, Hiring, and Retaining Household Help lays out the roadmap for legally hiring a nanny, determining wages, managing payroll and taxes, and much more. It’s a must read for anyone who has hired or plans to hire household help.
Compliance is not a “once-in-four-years” issue for top-level government employees. It’s important for everyone who has hired someone – a nanny, housekeeper, elder care worker, and others – to work out of their home.
Author Guy Maddalone, widely-recognized as the nation’s foremost household employment expert, relies on his 30 years of experience in the payroll and employment services industries to bring solutions to the pressing issues facing household employers.
“There are many intricacies to household employment from setting up as an employer, to ensuring you have the proper insurance to remitting the correct taxes that even the most tax-savvy and organized families can get tripped up,” Maddalone said. “You also want to maintain good HR practices to retain your best employees and attract top talent to work in your home.”
This latest edition of How to Hire a Nanny includes updated information on changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act, health care legislation, minimum wage laws, workers’ compensation requirements, Domestic Workers’ Bills of Rights, and immigration laws. All of which impact how household employees are hired, paid, and treated in the workplace (the employer’s home).
The book is available in paperback and as an ebook on Amazon.com.
