Publications \ 09.03.2017

Russian Ministry of Labor is planning to validate new quotas on issuing of entry invitations and labor permits for foreign employees.

The “Klub Kadrovikov” (“The Club of HR Professionals”), a professional journal on HR administration, consulted with major law experts and published a set of guidelines for employers on how to avoid the violation of the recent changes in labor and migration legislation provisions.

Dmitry Iliin, Head of Law department of Acsour, commented on the rationale for new quotas validation: “The annual revision of labor permit quotas for foreign employees is fairly justified in current social and economic environment”. Dmitry also believes that “this measure reflects a real business need for the foreign workforce, but at the same time provides the government with a required flexibility in monitoring and managing the labor market”.
