This is the time of year many au pairs will begin thinking about their education compliance. The most common question that I receive from au pairs is this.
Are host families responsible for paying my gas to and from class?
HOST FAMILY COMPLIANCE: Host families are responsible for covering reasonable transportation expenses including gasoline, parking, or public transportation costs (if applicable) to and from the local place of instruction.
TIP: If your au pair does not have use of the family car, it is best if the course is accessible by public transportation, as you are responsible for covering transportation costs or providing transportation to and from the class. Safety for your au pair is always a top priority as well. Be mindful of the pick-up/drop-off location and the time of day your au pair will be traveling to attend educational classes if traveling by bus or light rail.
