|A Guide to Understanding the Minimum Wage and Overtime Requirements for Domestic Employers in New York State |
People who work in household settings are commonly known as domestic workers. Examples of domestic workers
include nannies, babysitters, and home care aides and their job responsibilities can differ. Some live in the
household where they are employed, while others do not. Some are employed and paid directly by the household
employers while others are employed and paid through home care and domestic cleaning agencies who assign
their employees to the job orders the company receives. These variables can be extremely important in
understanding the federal and state laws that apply.

In New York family members have been shocked and dismayed to learn that they have had no legal rights at this crucial time. Now at last the law has been changed.
