Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), all nannies must be paid at least minimum wage for every hour worked. Some states have a higher minimum wage and in those states, the higher rate applies. More and more cities are passing local laws requiring a higher minimum wage and if you live in one of those cites, the higher rate applies. If you’re unsure of the minimum wage in your area, visit Homepay by Breedlove’s Requirements by State pages.
