Starting from 1 January 2018, companies are being inspected more frequently in terms of working conditions for employees with disabilities and the quota of jobs for such category of employees.
First and foremost, inspectors will verify whether companies are complying with their obligations to establish jobs for employees with disabilities. The quota for disabled employees in Moscow and St Petersburg is set at the level of at least 2% and 2.5% respectively, where there is an average headcount of over 100 employees.
Before proceeding with potential inspections, the Ministry of Labour has approved guidelines for identifying signs of discrimination against the disabled. According to such guidelines, both a disabled employee and an employer may determine to what extent conditions within a company correspond to Russian legislation.
