Wages: Overtime

Disclaimer: This information is for educational purposes only and should not be considered professional legal or tax advice.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that all LIVE-OUT nannies receive overtime for all hours worked over 40 in a work week. Some states have stricter overtime thresholds (e.g. overtime must be paid for all hours worked over 8 in a day) and in those states, the stricter threshold applies.
Some states also require that overtime be paid to LIVE-IN nannies. To get information about your state, visit Homepay by Breedlove’s Requirements by State pages.
