The au pair scheme in Denmark is categorized as a program of cultural exchange, so many of the rights covering Danish workers don’t apply to au pairs. On this page, we try to cover the rights that do cover you, such as the kinds of tasks you are meant to carry out and the regulations on whom you can legally work for.
On newtodenmark.dk it says that au pair tasks are defined as 'babysitting and light housework'. But what exactly does this mean? In this video, we give advice and guidance on which types of tasks are appropriate for an au pair and which aren't.
