The Federal Service for Employment and Labour Relations (abbreviated in Russian to ‘Rostrud’) has stated that an employment contract may stipulate that an employee has an obligation to notify the employer of the change in his/her personal data.
There is no statutory obligation for an employee to advise of a change in his/her name, residence or other personal data. Nonetheless, in order to mitigate its risks from possessing outdated personal data, an employer may formalize such a duty of an employee in the employment contract. This does not contravene the legislation and will help an employee’s personal data to be updated promptly. It will not out the employee in a worse position.
Acsour recommends checking the provisions of employment contracts with employees and making the corresponding amendments to mitigate risks for the employer.
