 Paying a Nanny in BC

On paydays, the employer must give the nanny a written wage statement for the pay period, which includes the following information:
  • The employer's name and address;
  • The hours worked by the nanny;
  • The nanny's wage and overtime rates
  • The hours worked at the overtime rate(s);
  • Any money, allowance or other payment the nanny is entitled to(vacation pay or statutory holiday)
  • The amount and purpose of each deduction;
  • The nanny's gross and net wages;

A wage statement must be a document separate from a nanny's pay cheque, so that it can be kept by the employee if desired.
