The government has passed a ruling which states that au pairs are no longer exempt fr…
Au pairs are entitled to two weeks of holiday for every three months they are with their host family. This equals 1.66 days of paid holiday per month.
When confirming a placement, we ask both you and your host family to stipulate any dates which you would prefer to take as holiday in advance. You can otherwise agree dates together at a later stage. Be mindful that families rely on you for childcare and therefore need sufficient notice of any holiday you would like to take.
BAPAA recommends that bank holidays are also given as free time for the pair.
