Nanny took additional holiday without having an allowance and without confirming the dates with me. I was left without childcare for a full working week and no contact from nanny for almost 48 hours after her return, finally getting some feedback via facebook.
This was the final straw and I sent her a letter terminating her contract. We're within a year's employment so no reason was stated, although I did send a separate letter with regards to the days she didn't turn up, including a copy of her holiday form, dates taken and allocation which were clearly provided on 2 occasions. There are additional reasons which came to light during her absence which have also contributed to the termination of her contract.
Her response on fb (!!)
im sorry pecan i will not be coming bak to you all this confusion and misunderstanding has made me feel very uncomfortable to come into work i can assure you i told you the exact dates i was going on holiday somewhere along the line there has been big confusion thanks will you let me no when i wil be gettin paid regards nanny
(and it always comes back to when she will be paid - same time every month but still get consistently harassed).
Flowery or Ribena or anyone else, are you around to confirm that I don't need to pay for unworked notice period, which I have said she needs to work?
