Polk Moms

Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.

After reading stories like, Nanny cam debate resurfaces after Staten Island arrest, it not only gives the why one would want to record a nanny, but also the legal how-to.

Advice given in the above article seems pretty sound; give full disclosure.   If you are recording, with sound, you must let the person know their voice is being recorded.

Pros to having a caregiver sign consent and acknowledgment of the surveillance:

1.) This could be a deterrent to not allow abuse to happen in the first place.  The nanny can be on their best behavior before abuse happens.  That's always a win-win.

2.) If legal action does transpire, your audio recordings would likely be admissible.
