Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May to remember the soldiers who gave their lives in service of their country. All (non-essential) government offices and banks are closed. Most nannies are allowed the day off with regualr compensation.
The New York State Legislature passed the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, making New York the first state in the nation to provide new standards of worker protections for more than 200,000 employees in an industry which has gone unregulated for decades. Part of that law gives nannies six paid holidays, including Memorial Day.
Do you have today off as a paid holiday? How many paid holidays do you get each year?
