Can anyone tell me when it is or isn't legal to pay someone else to look after your child?
Will be working a temp contract and a friend might care for my child for me in exchange for money just as you would a babysitter. Would that be legal? And if not why not. Would be a few hours a day for 10 days or so, in their own home or out and about.
It isn't legal to pay someone to look after your child in their home unless they are a registered childminder. Unless it is 2 hours a day for a maximum of 14 days per year so you may just get around it.
