Families looking for care solutions for elderly relatives sometimes end up considering paying caregivers under the table, in “cash” arrangements.
Caregivers are found privately and through employment agencies, or nannies are “re-assigned” to senior care duties. They are hired for “cash” with no taxes, EI or Workers Compensation payments made.
The risks with these “cash” arrangements are real and significant. Aside from being illegal, clients risk theft of personal possessions, abuse, coercion, claims by caregivers who injure themselves on the client’s property, and caregivers who report on their employers.
