New Obligation on Russian Employers to Tell Candidates Why They Weren't Hired

    View Authors July 2015
    Following changes to Article 64 of the Labour Code of the Russian Federation, Russian employers will shortly be required, if rejected job applicants ask for it, to provide a written statement of the reasons why they did not get the job within seven business days from the date of the request.

    A failure to comply with this requirement in due time may result in the imposition of a fine of up to fifty thousand roubles (€800, US$875, £565).
