Title European Agreement on Au Pair Placement
Reference CETS No.068
Opening of the treaty Strasbourg, 24/11/1969  - Treaty open for signature by the member States and for accession by non-member States
Entry into Force 30/05/1971  - 3 Ratifications.

The purpose of this Agreement is to avoid certain drawbacks of "au pair" placement, and to this end it contains precise provisions on the relationship between the host family and the young person placed "au pair" (who is considered to be neither a worker nor a student). Some provisions must be applied (e.g. the requirement that there be a written agreement, the rules on the obligations of the two sides in respect of working hours, free time, pocket money, etc.). The Council of Europe has drawn up a model contract for young persons placed "au pair".
