“Au pair” placement in Luxembourg

In Luxembourg the « au pair » placement is regulated by the law of February 18th, 2013, which determinates the framework of this temporary stay.

The law defines the “Au pair” placement as a temporary stay in a family, in exchange for light day-to-day family duties, of young foreigners who come to improve their linguistic knowledge as well as their general culture by acquiring a better knowledge of the country of stay, by encouraging them to take part in the cultural activities of the country.

The law creates a particular status for the “au pair” young person, to whom the provisions of the Labour Code are not applicable.
