When Mrs. Doubtfire Won’t Leave
San Francisco tenant lawyer Joseph Tobener comments about the California couple whose nanny refuses to leave their home. With an agreement to care for the couple’s three children in exchange for room and board, the nanny reputedly reneged on her commitment but continued living in the family’s home. Not only must the family wait for due process to take place (which prevents them from evicting her), but Tobener says arrangements like these can unwittingly violate minimum-wage laws.
