The US Department of State has specific guidelines that determine what services the Au Pair is to provide for the Host Family.
You cannot share an Au Pair with another Host Family at the same time, for example.
An Au Pair may not care for children that are not part of the Host Family. That is, they cannot care for any additional children at any time.
An Au Pair may not get any kind of additional job while they are in the U.S.
Your Au Pair cannot provide any non-child care related services nor can your Au Pair work additional hours regardless of compensation provided. Au Pairs can only provide services detailed in the Au Pair program regulations.
Au Pairs generally perform child care and child care related duties such as preparing food for the children, cleaning up after the children, doing children’s laundry, and helping with school work and leisure activities.
