This document contains a letter of invitation from a host family to an au pair. The letter invites the au pair to come to stay with the host family as a member of their family. An agreement is attached to the letter which confirms the obligations and expectations of each party.
Typically an au pair will be a young person who seeks to gain experience working with children, or in a new country. They will be treated as a member of the family, but will be expected to undertake some light household tasks and will look after the children from time to time. They will usually do these tasks for around 30 hours a week and will receive pocket money.
The parties will need to consider certain important information prior to the agreement commencing, which can be referred to in the letter and agreement including:
How to use this document
The host family should send the letter with the suggested terms of agreement attached to the au pair.
It is possible to send the letter and agreement by post with a physical signature. Two separate copies of the agreement should be signed and the au pair should sign both. The au pair should retain one copy and should return one copy to the host family. The host family could also send the documents via email, with an electronic signature on the letter and agreement. The au pair will then electronically sign the agreement and return it via email.
Each party should retain copies of the documents. The au pair may be required to provide a copy of the letter and agreement as part of any visa application.
There is no single specific piece of legislation which applies to au pair agreements. The general laws of contract will apply to the agreement.
