Central and eastern European HR - employment law in Russia

Who should attend

This course is relevant to international HR managers, directors with responsibility for employees in Russia and in-house employment lawyers. It will also be useful to managers and directors who anticipate entering the Russian market and who need to be aware of their responsibilities to their people.


Russian employment law is highly regulated, overly formalistic and slow to change with a changing world. Labor disputes are not uncommon for large and small employers alike. Procedural precision from the moment a company is incorporated is critical. Russian laws are not impacted by directives of the European Union. Specific problems may arise when HR is not managed locally. HR management requires a deep knowledge of local rules.

Employees in Russia are highly protected and unfair dismissal claims can, and do, result in compulsory reinstatement and awards of salary for all time the case was in court.

Led by a Russian employment lawyer, this course provides an overview of the implications of employing people in Russia and arm you with awareness of likely pitfalls so that you are not caught out.
