Re: Do you give your au pairs holiday pay?

Hiya

Au pairs should get 28 days holidays per 12 month period, including bank holidays. Pro rata works out to 1.66 days per month.

I have this set out in all my contracts between au pairs and host families as I own an au pair agency.

All the best!

Re: Au pair with bad body odour

I''m with the nanny advice on this one!

I run an au pair agency and if a family came to me with this issue, I would advise to speak to the au pair directly, in a respectful manner.

You will probably find that culturally, she will be able to handle it, so don't worry too much!

Good luck!

They generally earn below £107 in exchange for up to 35 hours per week. Some further info below from hmrc and here is my website www.findanaupai...
