The nannies of Nanny Home Netherlands all work according to the employment contract “service at home”. With this regulation, that initiated on January 1, 2007, families can hire someone to do chores in and around the house. This can include taking care of children, gardening, groceries or working as ‘alfa help’. The family however doesn’t have to pay wage taxes or reserve premiums for employee insurance.

For the nanny, this means that:

  • you sign a contract with the parents (contract Parent-Nanny) and you agree on your salary (hourly wage) with the parents (not allowed to be lower than minimum wage);
  • you are entitled to a holiday allowance of 8% (to be included in the hourly wage) and that up to 4 weeks of vacation are paid. Of these 4 weeks of vacation, at least 2 weeks need to be when the parents have vacation, and the other 2 weeks are determined in agreement with the parents;
  • in case of illness, the first two working days are on behalf of the nanny, after which up to 6 weeks will be paid (at least 70% of the agreed upon hourly wage, but at least minimum wage);
  • you are not (required) insured for employee insurance. You can therefore not claim sickness benefits, disability benefits (WIA) and unemployment benefits (WW). You can however insure yourself (optionally), for instance with the UWV;
  • you have to file your income for income taxes;
  • you maximally work three days a week for the same family (the nanny writes down the hours worked by her each day on the so-called monthly report, which she will send to Nanny Home Netherlands, provided with a signature by the nanny and the parent(s).
