MOSCOW, December 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s labour migration legislation will undergo change, Labor and Social Security Minister Maksim Topilin told the media on Friday.
“The president in his annual message to the Federal Assembly said the current employment system should undergo certain adjustments,” he recalled. “Now there are licenses that are issued to foreign employees coming from the countries having visaless relations with Russia. Such persons can work only for individuals in the capacity of personal assistants, baby-sitters, etc. However, the analysis has shown that quite often such people work for legal entities,” Topilin said. “The system of control was not fine-tuned. The presidential message contained the idea it might be possible to let them work not only for individuals, but also for legal entities. We are now drafting instructions on the basis of the message.”
Topilin also touched upon the theme of quotas legal entities had to comply with in hiring foreign personnel. Licenses are not liable to quotas or any other restrictions.
“We shall have to give thought to how to establish some thresholds for regions,” Topilin said. “We discussed that with the ministries and agencies. We believe there may be some restrictions.”
The price of licenses should be raised from the current 1,000 roubles (roughly an equivalent of 30 US dollars).
“Prices may vary from region to region. In Moscow, the price may be higher, and in other regions lower. But in any case the price will be higher than one thousand roubles a month. Topilin said.
