Nanny and Domestic Employee Hourly Rates Paid Directly to the Nanny or Domestic Candidate you Hire.

Nanny and domestic candidates that we place work directly for the family, and families that we work with are required to pay them legally. This means paying them an hourly rate (and overtime 1.5 times for hours over 40 hours, if they are a live-out employee) by W-2 payment (we walk you through the process of paying your candidate legally and recommend several domestic payroll companies to pick from). Nannies hourly rates start at $17.00 an hour in Charlotte and the Carolinas, and can go up to $25.00 plus an hour. For other domestic placements. Hourly rates can run between $20.00 – $30.00 plus an hour depending on the roles and responsibilities the employee is hired for.
