If you're using any video monitoring equipment in your home, our best advice is always to be open and honest with your nanny. When a system is first installed or discovered there can be a negative view from your nanny - mainly that they feel you do not trust them to care for your children. By being up front about any filming, you can tackle these concerns head on and ensure that your nanny feels reassured from the outset.
You can read the government guidance on this subject here, but our interpretation of these guidelines is that:
a nanny should be told when they are being monitored through the use of a nanny cam or similar
any data recorded should be stored in accordance with GDPR laws
cameras cannot be installed in any private spaces, e.g. a bathroom
If you have any specific concerns or questions, we would also recommend a call to ACAS who provide free and impartial advice for employers.
