Employment contracts lawyer

The Constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees everyone the right to freely dispose of their abilities to work and to choose profession at personal discretion. 

In accordance with the labor legislation of the Russian Federation, an employment contract shall be understood as an agreement between an employer and an employee, according to which the employer provides the employee with work for a specific job function, undertakes to pay wages, ensures working conditions, whereas the employee undertakes to personally perform the work function defined by this agreement in the interests and under the control of the employer.

Russian legislation in the field of labor law imposes a number of essential requirements on the conclusion of an employment contract. Besides, the Labor Code of the Russian Federation contains an exhaustive list of mandatory terms and conditions that must be included in an employment contract.

As a rule, people tend to believe that they should seek legal advice only when the rules of labor legislation have already been violated. However, this is not the case. Professional assistance of a lawyer is necessary even at the stage of concluding an employment contract in order to subsequently avoid negative consequences and unnecessary disputes between the employee and the employer.

The lawyer will help both the employer and the employee to draft an employment contract that will meet all legal requirements as well as provide a comprehensive legal consultation on any issue related to labor law, thus helping to protect the rights and interests of the parties to the contract. 

In addition, both before and after the signing of the employment contract, certain formalities should be observed. Compliance with all these formalities can be guaranteed by the lawyer’s assistance. A lawyer will help to draw up an employment contract that fully meets legal standards, as well as avoid unnecessary risks when hiring an employee to the company’s staff.
