A babysitter contract is a simple contract between a parent and an individual who is being hired to take care of their children for a limited period. The document will include descriptions of the duration of employment, the work schedule, the hourly rate the babysitter will be paid, and any expenses that the parent will pay for. If the children have any allergies or diet restrictions, these should also be described in the document. As a precautionary measure, the parent may also provide a list of behaviors that will result in the sitter’s termination. Such prohibited behaviors can include the consumption of alcohol and illegal substances, smoking, leaving the child alone with another individual, and allowing unauthorized individuals to be present while the child is being cared for.
