Disposable Workers? The experience of Au Pairs in Co. Meath

Cultúr launches its report Disposable Workers? The experience of Au Pairs in Co. Meath and will meet with local TDs who are members of the Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Innovation and Enterprise today to highlight the treatment of Au Pairs as a sub category of worker and the resulting exploitation this causes.

We are calling for the National Employment Rights Agency to launch a public awareness campaign to raise awareness among employers about their obligations and duties as employers to Au Pair workers.

The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation should also ensure that adequate supports are provided to Au Pairs to seek redress where their rights are being infringed.
