Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today, is this a one off arrangement?
Hi we are hoping it can be permanent as she has 3 days at college during the week
Ok thanks I need to research the position on this as it is not a question we get asked very often. Is it ok if I get back to you on this tomorrow?
yes thats fine
thanks I'll get back to you then.
Hi did you find the answer to my question?
Hi unfortunately unless the work is carried out in her home then there is no exception the rule in the Working Time Regulations that a young worker may not work over 8 hours in one period or over 40 hours in a 7 day period. The reality though, is that only she could bring a claim against you , and given that she is related to you this is unlikely.
I am sorry for the delay in responding I just wanted to check the position on family and private household but cannot find exceptions on that basis.
If you have any further quesitons please do ask.
sorry do you mean the aunties own home which it will be
The regulations say the exceptions are work carried out at home the logical interpretation of that would be in your own home.
ok many thanks
HI I have just found something to help you.
I am really sorry I don't know why it did not flag up the first look at the regs. As a young worker who is a 'domestic worker' the normal working hours do not apply. The regulations are set out in a confusing way so I am sorry I did not spot this in the first instance.
