If your nanny works overtime, you should plan on compensating her for her time. Nannies who work more than 40 hours within a 7-day workweek must get overtime pay or paid time off to compensate them. You should plan on paying overtime pay for nannies at a compensation rate of 1.5 times your nanny’s hourly wage.

Overtime pay for nannies can be built into the salaries. For instance, a nanny who works a 50-hour workweek might get a lump wage based on an hourly rate of 40 hours plus 10 hours of overtime pay. A nanny can work as many hours as you and she agree upon.
