While a nanny contract should cover a detailed description of the nannies duties and her interaction with the family, there are some areas that should never be in a contract for legal reasons. This especially applies to contracts for live-in nannies. The employers have no right to specify where the nanny can go on her time off. They are also forbidden from insisting that the nanny go with them to religious services. There are also some requirements that are not necessarily illegal, but are excessive. It is not advisable to include specific instructions on how to do simple household tasks, such as folding the towels or washing the dishes. The family must understand that the nanny has her own way of doing these things.
