AuPairCare, Inc.


Our firm, alongside the law firm of Rukin Hyland & Riggin, has filed arbitration demands against International Training & Exchange, Inc., which does business as AuPairCare, Inc., on behalf of current and former au pairs. These demands allege that AuPairCare failed to properly pay its au pairs minimum wages and/or overtime wages.  

Arbitration is an out-of-court dispute resolution proceeding. In court, a judge or jury decides the case. In arbitration, the parties choose an arbitrator to resolve the dispute. An arbitration hearing is less formal than a court proceeding. If a case goes to hearing, an arbitrator issues a ruling as to whether the claimant is entitled to unpaid wages or other damages. The arbitrator’s decision is generally binding on both parties, with limited basis to appeal the decision to a court. We are filing claims in arbitration, rather than in court, because it is our understanding that AuPairCare au pairs signed arbitration agreements.

Ignasi should be able to answer your questions and, should he not be able to, will put you in contact with an attorney who works on this case.

Type of Case

Minimum Wage/Unpaid Overtime

Share

Am I eligible?

If you worked as an au pair for AuPairCare in any state within the last 3 years, you may be eligible to make a claim for unpaid wages in arbitration. Federal law requires employers to pay overtime after 40 hours in a workweek and to pay the federal minimum wage. If you worked over 40 hours per week, you may have a federal overtime claim. If you did not work overtime, you may still have a claim for unpaid minimum wages under the relevant state or federal law. Depending on the state where you worked, you might be able to pursue wages for work performed more than three years ago.

Additional Information

How Do I Proceed with My Claim?

Given the likelihood that you signed an arbitration agreement, the only way for you to pursue your potential wage claims may be through an individual arbitration demand. If you are interested in discussing your rights and/or filing an individual arbitration demand, please contact Ignasi Dorca by emailing him at idorca@nka.com or by calling him at 612-256-3224 (office) or +1 (612) 426-1266 (WhatsApp). Ignasi should be able to answer your questions and, should he not be able to, will put you in contact with an attorney who works on this case.

Do I Have to Pay Anything?

You do not have to pay anything if you make a claim against AuPairCare. We are handling the cases on a contingency basis. This means we will only be paid if we are successful in obtaining relief either through a settlement, award, or a final judgment, and that our payment will only come out of that settlement, award, or final judgment.

What About Retaliation?

It is against the law for an employer to punish a person for submitting a demand to reclaim unpaid wages. If you believe you may be the victim of retaliation for participating in an arbitration case against AuPairCare, contact us immediately.

How Long Will This Case Take?

The length of individual arbitrations varies from case to case, but they typically last one to two years.
