About Our Service
Families Help Line, a nanny & domestic worker finder service
(a former nanny/domestic help placement agency) can help you find a suitable nanny or other household worker referral for your family at a fraction of the cost you would pay a nanny or domestic help placement agency for a somewhat similar service! A nanny or domestic worker placement agency may charge you from $700 to $2,500 (or more) in application/placement fees to find you a part or full-time nanny or domestic worker referral. Some of the services they provide you with are applicant pre-employment background screening and a replacement guarantee with a limited time frame on the individual you plan to employ through their agency.
If you are like most families in the U.S., trying to stay within the family budget is a given so when you need assistance in finding in-home help it may be possible for you to save
THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
when using our service compared to contracting a nanny and/or domestic worker placement agency.
Our biggest challenge in the applicant recruitment process is to help you locate a suitable candidate who will match your family's employment requirements. Once we locate such an applicant, we will then check his or her work references then provide you with the result of these inquiries for your review. It would be your responsibilty to obtain and pay for pre-employment background screening costs on the applicant you plan to employ.
Pre-employment Background Screening
Once you register with our service, we can direct you to an affordable online background screening service where you can have a private investigator do all of the necessary pre-employment background screening on the applicant you wish to employ. The costs varies for this type of screening depending on what you want to have done but it usually runs a little less than $50 for a local driving and criminal record search in most (not all) locations and the turn-around time for the completion of these investigations usually occur within a 24-hour time frame.
