Course Description

When most financial professionals think of household employment, they think of state and federal tax calculations and employment tax filings.  However, Domestic Worker Bill of Rights legislation in a number of states as well as hundreds of state and municipal wage & hour law nuances, have made the labor law side of household employment arguably more complex than the tax side.

Due to recent regulatory changes, families that employ a domestic worker (i.e. nannies, senior caregivers, personal assistants, housekeepers, etc.) have a maze of tax and labor law issues to navigate. Employment tax filings are half of the compliance puzzle. The other half – and where much of the risk is – falls within the labor law and insurance aspects of household employment, which are quite different from those in the commercial employment world. Without expert guidance, families with domestic workers (i.e. nannies, senior caregivers, personal assistants, housekeepers, etc.) will likely make a number of expensive, time-consuming mistakes.  

Tom Breedlove, Director of Care.com HomePay, the country’s leading household employment specialist, will share real-life case studies as well as regulatory updates, insights, and tips to help clients mitigate risk and save money.
