My wife and I started the agency as we were having trouble finding a suitable Au Pair for our two children.

Many families were having the same problem and I began contacting people in Spain. We now work with agencies in Spain to bring the best Au Pairs over to our families. Many of our candidates are teachers, summer camp workers or people with a genuine interest with children.

Employment Law - IMPORTANT

Au pairs are not excluded from employment law and enjoy the same protection as domestic workers. The ILO Domestic Workers Convention 2011 (No. 189) defines a domestic worker as any person engaged in domestic work within an employment relationship in or for a household or households. A person who performs domestic work only occasionally or sporadically and not on an occupational basis is not considered a domestic worker. Domestic work is generally accepted to include cleaning, cooking, laundry, childminding, care of elderly or sick family members, gardening and maintenance, driving, and any other duties relating to a household. The use of designations such as 'Au Pair' or other descriptions of arrangements between consenting parties do not in themselves mean that a person working in a home is not an employee under Irish law.

Domestic workers enjoy the same protection under Irish employment legislation as all other legally employed workers. The rights of persons employed in private homes are set out in a Code of Practice, produced by the Labour Relations Commission in consultation with representatives of Social Partners.
