A nanny from the US has refused to leave her employer’s house unless they agree to her list of demands.
Diane Stretton was let go of her child-minder position a month ago. However, Diane refused to leave the house upon her dismissal and instead barricaded herself in her room. She then refused to sign any notices of termination as she said her termination wasn’t “legal”.
Employer and mum of three, Marcella Bracamonte called the police, but they were unable to do anything as it was a civil manner and the nanny had to be evicted, even though she wasn't paying any rent.
But now the 64-year-old minder has agreed to leave the house by July 7th, but only if the family agree to her list of demands:
“Agreement: I will voluntarily agree to leave by 6pm on 7/6/14 if each and all of the following conditions are met:
1. My WiFi and TV and house air conditioning and water must be continuously on until I vacate. Electricity in my room must be operational.
2. Bathrooms must be stocked up with TP (toilet paper) and hand soap at all times.
3. Marcella and kids must vacate the premises between the hours of 8am and 5pm until 7/6/14 whether I elect to leave during the day or not.
4. Between the hours of 5pm and 8am, I have full access to my room, the garage bathroom and the areas of the house between the front door and my bedroom. I will not linger in these areas.
5. I'm either given access to healthy food or given $200 to eat out. Said access to food shall be limited to hours between 8am and 5pm.
6. Neither the front door nor my bedroom shall be locked in a manner than prevents me from entering.  
This means the chain must be off and the locks cannot be changed.
In exchanged for the above, I will agree not to seek any of my legal remedies for your past violations of our agreement.”
Diane said the reason she hadn’t left the house sooner was due to the hot weather and the media coverage of the case.
Stretton called her previous employer a “drama queen” and claimed the family cut off her air-conditioning, and Internet access after they fired her. She insists that her dismissal was unfair one.
“There wasn’t a single day I was there, except for the two days I was sick, that I didn’t do dishes and about two or three hours of cleanup,”  
However Marcella has learnt that Diane has a long history of lawsuits and says she won’t be pushed of her house.
"Anyone who looks at her crooked, she sues. I'm not going to bend for her. I'm in charge, this is my house. She's not going to scare me out of my own house."
