FairWork supports migrant workers who are vulnerable to exploitation. This also includes au pairs who come to the Netherlands through the au pair scheme. In 2020, Mitchie Boncodin-Isip, a student at ISS, conducted a a study for FairWork into the experiences of Filipina au pairs in the Netherlands. She concluded: Although there have been improvements in the sector, and many au pairs also have positive experiences, there are still cases of exploitation and abuse. Covid-19 presented additional challenges for many of them.
