Highly-Qualified foreign workers are prohibited from being employed in Retail
The Government of the Russian Federation has submitted to the State Duma draft legislation for changes in the regulation and rules for the recruitment of foreign citizens with the intent to improve the mechanism of recruiting foreign labor, ensuring its flexibility, transparency and efficiency.
The draft legislation proposes to change firstly, the status of highly-qualified foreign employees, and secondly - the rules for quotas for work permits issued to foreigners, as well as the allocation of quotas by regions of the Russian Federation and the professional qualification groups.
The authors of the draft legislation propose to establish a rule, in accordance with which highly-qualified professionals will not be able to be hired for commercial customer service in retail, except for work within management and coordination of activities related to the conduct of a trade.
Also, the draft legislation proposes the transfer of authority to determine the rules of the formation and distribution of quotas, to increase or decrease their size as well as the rules for fixing the reserve quotas from government of the Russian Federation to the federal executive authority.
