If this is your first time hiring a nanny you may have heard people talk about a nanny confidentiality agreement. You might think of a confidentiality agreement as something signed by health care workers, or people employed by the government. You might think there's nothing terribly exciting going on in your house, at least nothing exciting enough to have the nanny sign a confidentiality agreement. But think again. There's probably a lot more going on in your house and in your family than you realize. If you're not sure whether a nanny confidentiality agreement is appropriate for you, ask yourself the following questions:
I (nanny's printed name) understand the necessity of discretion and confidentiality for all matters pertaining to the (insert family name) household and will not discuss (by any means, including electronic messaging) any personal information related to the (insert family name) family.
An Internet search will generate other sample nanny confidentiality agreements to choose from as well.
