Search firms for nannies represent big business in many metro areas. They now also represent big questions about liability. Every firm in Manhattan, Washington D.C., LA, and San Francisco must be talking to their lawyers today. The subject is how to make screening nannies bullet-proof in the event those hired commit horrific acts.
In a New York minute every assumption associated with hiring a nanny has been thrown into question with the alleged murder of the two Krim children by nanny Yoselyn Ortega. As NEW YORK Magazine reports, the very existence of The Nanny has become a questionable job function in America.
On top of the censure of parents who hire nannies is now the fear that in that subordinate role could be raging anger at economic inequality or even insanity. How does a search firm screen for that and what procedures will the legal experts recommend be added to those already the status quo.
Lefty media, of course, will get a lot of mileage viewing The Nanny from the perspective of the underclass who bring up wealthy folks' children.
