Payroll and HR compliance is complex. Companies prefer to outsource this function to professional providers to maintain confidentiality, ensure compliance, and mitigate tax and labour risks. Aside from our full scope of payroll services, we can also undertake a payroll health-check review.

Labor Safety

The Russian Labour Code and other regulations set out the requirements for labour safety in organisations. Companies can ensure their labour safety compliance by implementing the following compulsory initiatives: special assessment of workplace conditions, medical examinations, briefings and training sessions, and the preparation of statutory documentation.

Non-compliance with health and safety regulations is an administrative offence (Article 5.27.1 of the Russian Administrative Code) and an employer may be liable to financial and non-financial penalties, up to the disqualification of the company’s officers and the suspension of its operations. A breach of labour safety regulations that results in the serious injury or death of an employee is a criminal offence covered by the Russian Criminal Code (Article 143 of the Russian Criminal Code).

We would be happy to provide you with the full scope of our labour safety support services:

  • advisory services on compliance with Russian labour safety legislation
  • creation of legally-compliant templates for statutory labour safety documentation
