I recently took a job as a nanny in my own house from a person I've met before. We are both military families. We had only a "verbal agreement", which my husband witnessed. While on the job, I was demanded to work on Sunday and after agreement hours including overtime. I was also required to pick up/drop off kids from different locations at their convenience. And i was asked to make the kids meals, then snacks, all of these out of my pocket. At the time I thought I was going to get paid for overtime and would be reimbursed for gas and meals I've provided. I was wrong. When I requested to sit and talk to go over this things they ignored me. And when I declined their next request, they just fired me without notice. Now they don't want to pay me and are denying the facts. Anything I can do?Agreement was to take care of the kids at my house. Pay: $750 a month. Schedule would vary from 9am - 8 pm, Monday - Friday. I stated at the time that I wasn't able to do 9am - 8pm on a daily basis, but only occasionally while husband is TDY. They agreed. Kids were dropped off between 9am – 11am and picked up between 3pm-5 pm. They promised a written 6 month contract, and kept holding onto it. Week 1:By 3rd day they requested for me to share my own meals with kids and stopped providing lunch. Week 2: The father was TDY and kids were picked up between 9pm -10 pm. I had to provide lunch, dinner and snacks. I was also asked to pick up oldest kid from bus stop at their house. Week 3: I was asked to receive kids earlier than agreed on or go pick them up at their mother's job site. I decline and requested to sit and talk. They ignore me and I was fired. I email them and got rude answer. They owe me 3 days, overtime, and meals provided. I emailed invoice. Now they say they don't owe me since there was no contract.
