Re: working conditions of a live in nanny

Is this possible if she has no permit and perhaps not from EU? How would she go about that?

Re: working conditions of a live in nanny

The work permits don't take long to get - I'm an au pair and was taken the day I arrived to sort it out, arrived 2 weeks later. Those working hours seem excessively long, and the things she's been promised and not gotten really does seem like the family taking her for a ride. She should have plenty of free time, tell her to quit and find another job with a much more caring family!

I don't understand how familys can get around to mistreating the people that work for them. Especially as msot au pairs/nannys are young women, I would expect the family to take them on and treat them how they would want their own daughters treated. I'm very lucky that my host family treats me like an older daughter rather than an employee!

But seriously tell her to quit, if shes not happy then its not worth it, there are hundreds of kind familys out there looking for nannys!
