Mannlíf recently published screenshots of a list of tasks, meant for an „au pair“ living  with a host family in Iceland. The list in question has been harshly criticized. It contained examples of rules and tasks that the au pair was meant to follow and do.

The tasks and working hours on the list are not in accordance with the rules regarding au pairs working in Icelands. The au pair was, according to the list, meant to work eleven and a half hour each day. According to The Directorate of Immigration, au pairs are not allowed to work more than 30 hours per week, or 5 hours a day.

Sources say that the host family that the list belonged to has been in the culinary and retail business in Iceland for the last few years. Two of the restaurants run by the family are well known. There has been a loud demand for the identities of the members of the host family to be released, so people can avoid doing business with them.

Mannlíf contacted the mother. She claims there to be a misunderstanding; that she is in fact the victim in the situation. „I am the victim, after the au pair left, me and my children!“

She then offered to send over data that would prove the whole thing to be a misunderstanding. The data has still not been received. The reporter of Mannlíf has repeatedly tried to contact her again after this, but the woman has not answered any messages or phone calls.
