Just a thought here...TSA is considered to be apart of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The Department of Homeland Security was created under by the Homeland Security Act. Many of the tactics the Department of Homeland security use are allowed because of the Patriot Act. However, the Patriot Act was set to expire until President Obama extended the Act. However, the legality of the Act is still in question as he did not actually sign the bill with his signature. He used the autopen machine to sign the Act. However, Lawyers have argued the validity of the autopen device and say is not legal. With the legality of the extension in doubt, couldnt a Lawyer argue in court in court that the TSA is using illegal tactics no longer covered because the Patriot Act has expired and no longer holds a place in the U.S.?

The nanny would have no basis to sue as she gave consent to the searches prior to accepting employment.

As posted here many times, you need to read the actual contract. If you try to take legal action and use as your defense "I did not read the contract" you will be laughed at for sure. Be aware of what you are getting yourself into. Read the fine print to be sure you are not agreeing to something you are not aware of.

I knew a guy so rotten he got fired from his job as a prison guard.
Most places wouldn't hire a person like that.
Guess who he works for now?
Want really scary? He's a supervisor.

She got arrested for screaming and cussing out the TSA staff, not for refusing to let her kid get patted down. If your gonna act like a retard in a public place then you need arrested. If she had kept a calm and polite voice and refused the patdown and left the airport she would have been fine.
Secondary Security Screening Selection or Secondary Security Screening Selectee,
known by its acronym SSSS, is an airport security measure in the United States and Canada which selects passengers for additional inspection.
This may also be known as Selectee, Automatic Selectee or the Selectee list. The list contains 14,000 names, as of December 2009
Procedure when selected Passengers who have been selected for this secondary screening will have the letters SSSS or *S* (all capitals) printed on their boarding passes. SSSS passengers will go through a more intensive screening process which may include puffer explosive detectors. Their carry-on luggage may be also be inspected by hand. In the case of film or other items that cannot be X-rayed, the agent may perform a test for possible explosive materials. The screener may also use a hand held metal detector to search the passenger for metal objects
