-----------------------------------
I currently mind a little girl on a Monday and Friday for 10 each day. They do not want to pay me when it is a Bank Holiday or over Christmas and New Year. What would be an acceptable arrangement as I can´t afford to go without any pay for all these holidays. Please advise!

The only trouble with pushing for pay is can you afford lose the job...if you can id settle for bank hols paid at least...I dont charge bank hols or school hol time if child.ren off but id prefer not to work.,.
Im assuming you in your own house otherwise you legally entitled to certain standards re pay n holiday entitlements if in theirs.
its a long day you work, if they getting a good day rate id insist on bank hols...

Many thanks for advice. I am working just over 10 hours per day for 50 euro per day which I think is quite reasonable for such a long day. I will talk to them again. Thanks again.
