Child Care News for Parents & Carers
November 7, 2018
Welcome, this week information on recent changes to the laws around employing nannies and why your child needs a daily dose of play.
Recent changes around the employment of nannies
Although an Award is something a school child is presented with on stage, in the employment context, Awards actually set out the minimum pay rates and conditions for different types of workers.

According to the Fair Work Ombudsman, there are more than 100 industry or occupation Awards, and when it comes to child carers, a 2018 legal decision has changed the Award status of some nannies.

Here we look at what this means in practice.
