What does it mean to be a helpr?

To start, we want to make sure you understand what it means to work as an independent contractor through Helpr. 

First and foremost, Helpr is not your employer. We’ve listed a few terms and are always happy to help clarify any questions you may have. 

• Helpr does not provide equipment, tools, materials, or space for babysitting. Clients are responsible for providing these. 

• Helpr does not direct how you, as a babysitter, supervise children; it is up to you to exhibit professionalism and expertise. 

• Helpr does not guarantee a set number of bookings per week or month. 

• While you are not required to exclusively use Helpr for babysitting work, Helpr’s client list (a trade secret) must be booked through Helpr. So if you have a positive experience with a family through our connection, be sure to book them on the app for future engagements. 

• Helpr’s suggested rates of pay are set by industry standards.
