Employment law has always been one of the most painful areas of law for the major companies and an unexpectedly tough area for the foreign businesses coming to Russia. While the regulatory framework intends to provide for certain balance of employer-employee interests many foreign employers would find the general outline quite different from what they would expect, especially in the amount of rights the employee would have. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon that the employees may wish to take advantage of the opportunities provided to them by the regulatory framework.
Our lawyers have big experience in helping the Russian businesses take the necessary steps to minimise their risks connected with employment relations. We also assist individual clients to make sure they get the protection provided for by the current Russian legislation.
