MOSCOW, January 3. /TASS/. Agency labor (the work done by employees at the direction of their employer for the benefit, directed and controlled by an individual or legal entity, who is not their supervisory official) has been banned in Russia starting from January 1, 2016.
Earlier the term wasn’t used in Russian legislation. The federal law from May 5, 2014 "On making alterations to certain legal acts of the Russian Federation" introduced and simultaneously banned it due to common practice of using agency labor on a regular basis, taking off the payroll for spending reduction (outsourcing) and for the purpose of attracting foreign employees without filing necessary quotas.
Now the companies will be able to employ personnel only on a temporary basis (up to 9 months) and in cooperation with accredited private recruitment agencies and firms, which have the right to be engaged in providing employees’ labor.
