Is it legal for a day care to charge you for holidays that fall on your child's scheduled day but not watch your child that day?
Question Details: Our day care just sent us a new contract stating that we have to pay for our child's care on holidays that fall on our scheduled day but they do not care for any child on holidays. They say this is so they can give their employees paid holidays.
It's legal if you sign the contract and send your child to the daycare: people can agree to pay for days they don't have work done, the way some employers give employees paid holidays (i.e. paying employees to not work). If you don't agree with this policy, find a different day care, because the policy is legal--your only choice is whether to sign up with this day care or not.
