I wanted some perspective on this. My nanny is a great girl - obliging etc and good with littleone. However there have been two issues arising lately, she is ill alot - she doens't ake itme off but she is constantly turning up complaining about swollen glands/fever etc. I'm never sure what to say - if she is honestly ill then I expect her to phone in sick and not pass the illness onto my son, if she's not then I really don't want to hear her moan!
Secondly we have an agreement that she gets a basic monthly wage for 130 hrs a month and that hours over and above that are paid as overtime on the day. Now at the end of april she presented me with a sheet with details of the hours she though she had worked - she said she had her holiday to pay for and needed extra cash. The sheet is wrong - do i pay up in the interest of keeping things smooth between us or query it? It comes to £100 which is actually alot when after childcare etc I usually only have a takehome pay of £40 a week.
(won't happen again as I'm keeping a log and getting her to sign it now)
