California is set to pass a nanny law with inspirations from New York. Other states will follow for their own domestic worker bill of rights. There is challenge in this industry and the workforce is so fragmented and decentralized. Many of these nannies work past 40 hours with no overtime pay, no breaks during the day, and working 7 days a week. Supporters say employers will have the flexibility to work out compromises like allowing on-duty breaks in the home and having 1 day off and allowing vacation time. Many employers of New York did not know about the Nanny Law, a survey was conducted and found 37% employers did complied. More education is needed for this law.
