How many hours does an au pair have to work?
There is no standard au pair working schedule that is applicable all countries. In some countries, like Germany or the United States, there are official rules. In others, like Australia, there is no official au pair programme. According to our basic idea of au pairing, though, an au pair should never work more than 30 hours per week. In most host countries, official au pair working hours include time spent babysitting.
