A Q&A about nannies driving with Martha Scully

Full-time nannies care for children all day, every day. You don't expect them to sit around at home all day, but maybe everything they need isn't within walking distance. Little Mary has soccer practice 3 days a week, and Steven has piano lessons 1 day a week. Not to mention the errands some families ask their nannies to do for them.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be posting some of the questions I've received through CanadianNanny.ca with my advice.

What is the liability of the nanny if they am driving around with children in their own vehicle?

I strongly recommend that the nanny talks to their insurance provider about this, as insurance coverage varies from province to province. It is possible that the nanny's insurance premiums will increase if they increase the level of liability coverage for the purpose of driving children for employment.

This is another item that can be discussed between the family and nanny, as the family may be willing to pay for a portion of the increased insurance coverage. Like other transportation compensation, this should be included in the employment contract if it comes up.

Check back for future posts around nannies and travel/transportation compensation!
