New York Makes It Illegal For Nannies To Make Up Credentials
From the book of laws that you have to question didn't exist already comes one about nannies. New York just passed a law making it illegal for nannies to make up credentials.
US News reports that this new state law was signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The law makes it a misdemeanor for a nanny or someone else to lie about their references or background for employment purposes.
The law is known as "Lulu and Leo's Law" in honor of two children who were murdered by their nanny in 2012 in New York City. The woman's credentials and references had been faked. Lawmakers passed the measure earlier this year."
This law should protect families and children. It is kind of odd that it didn't exist already.
