Complaint >> Posted: Jul 26 '16 by Fabiana in Brabant Wallon, Belgium
We had some doubts since the beginning when talking about duties related to the work contract signed and accepeted by the young lady.
Very soon she demonstrated her real goal and we were disappointed but patient, explaining several time to her why she was at home and the purposes of beeing a "fille au pair"
Never the less she was determined, and we discovered it talking with the officials of the Administration in charge for immigration and files related to "au pair" to whom, without any problem, she said about her program to leave our family before the holidays!
The officilal told her that it was impossible according to the work contract, by the way related to the work permit and temporary Visa. She disattended and one day, while on holidays, she decided to leave...
In the end , sadly, we also discovered that she was trying to circunvent our to youngest children (the little one several times was inducted to lie, for little things but still! and the girl aged 14 by telling her often, that she should not let her parents to steal her life!!!! )
A real toxic profile for a family.
