Yes he paid me after my daughter took 3 months maternity leave and I then took over the baby's care. The agreement was to then help out when she joined nursery by collecting her at lunchtime for 5 afternoons per week on alternate weeks when my daughter had access and when my son-in-law had access I still collected her from nursery and he picked her up from my house after finishing work when there was never any eye contact or conversation on his part!?
Not sure what is meant by 'employing me' (?) I was being paid monthly - hope that answers your question.
