Early termination of the young “au pair” placement

The “au pair” young person placement is automatically terminated at the end of the term, in case of withdrawal of the approval of the host family or in case of withdrawal of the authorisation of the  “au pair“ young person. 

If the approval of the family is withdrawn, the authorisation of the “au pair” young person shall be forfeited, provided that he/she can submit a new placement agreement within a month. 

The “au pair” placement agreement may be terminated early with immediate effect, in case of major force or gross negligence by one of the parties and by giving at least one month notice in any other cases. The party that is considering terminating the “au pair” placement agreement shall notify the other party in writing with a copy thereof to the attention of the National Youth Service. (SNJ)

When the host family is considering terminating the “au pair” placement agreement before the end of the term, it shall, before any decision, convene the interested person to a meeting where the reasons of the contemplated decision are explained and where the “au pair” young person’s explanations are heard. The host family and the “au pair” young person have the right to ask for the mediation of a representative of the National Youth Service, provided that they inform the other party thereof beforehand and in good time.
