Creating a form for babysitting can be done by looking over sample forms online, or simply printing off contracts available from websites, such as Care.com or AllergyFreeTable, that offer a variety of babysitting agreements. Babysitter checklists, medical release forms and allergy action plans are easy to download via AllergyFreeTable.Continue Reading
RocketLawyer also offers a free child care authorization form, written by lawyers, therefore making it legally binding between the employer and babysitter once signed.
Once signed up for a membership with Care.com, parents and babysitters can also access its comprehensive sample nanny contract, covering everything from hours, holiday work and paid time off, to social media pictures of children, mileage and tax withholding.
Regardless of the route decided upon, it is good to cover all of the bases. Make sure the babysitter form includes written agreements on wages, expectations of activities to be done or avoided with children, acceptable foods, which party will cover costs for gas and mileage, actions that are grounds for immediate termination and Fair Labor Standards Act information for the care giver's protection. Both parties should be clear on every part of the contract and be certain their rights are protected. But most importantly, the safety of the children involved and quality of care should be taken into consideration above all else.Learn more about Advertising
