I was hired last week as a nanny for a family in NY. Not only is the position not what we discussed, but I feel overworked, underpaid, and even verbally abused sometimes. I want to leave without giving notice, but I'm afraid of the legal ramifications. We agreed on a contract, and in an e-mail I said that it looked fine, and that I would sign it, but we never got around to that yet. In that contract it said I would give 4 weeks notice, but again, I never signed it. Can quitting on the spot come back to bite me?I am afraid that if I give notice that they might tell me to leave on the spot. It is a live-in position and I have no where to go at this point as I am new to the area. I would instead leave on Saturday morning, when I can get someone to take me out of the area. Second, is there a breach of contract if I didn't sign? Lastly, I obviously wouldn't be using them as a reference!
