Au pair permit not registered to your home

More permit questions!

If you have an employee or au pair (as in my case) working in your house but registered elsewhere, is that permitted? I don't think it is, but I really want to check, as I have someone interested in working for me but doesn't want to live in the house and doesn't want to change the permit address, but wants to be employed as an au pair!

Obviously she will have insurance, but as an au pair shouldn't she be registered that she works in my home? And if she breaks a leg in my home, will I be covered!

Have looked in all the usual places, but before I offer her the job I want to make sure I have covered all my tracks!

Thanks again!

As long as she lives in your Canton I think it will be OK. But why not call your Gemeinde office, and not risk the 50% inaccuracy of EF?

She does not have to live with you & thus she does not have to change her permit address which is her place of residence.

It seems that she is not really an "au pair" in the Swiss sense of the word but be an employee. You'll still have to get insurance against accidents in your house whether she lives with you or not. She'll have to register as working for you with the commune and the AVS. But that's not the same as where she lives.

Re: Au pair permit not registered to your home

Called up the geminde and she changed the address on the form after my husband signed it. It's not wrong to have her registered elsewhere, but what was done was deceptive.

If she had asked we would have checked it out and said yes!
