Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
On 1 January 2023, Federal Law No. 237-FZ dated 14 July 2022 (the “Law”) came into force. The Law changed the way companies cooperate in terms of the engagement of individuals under civil law contracts. The text of the Law is available in Russian here.
Considering the latest recommendations from the Russian Ministry of Labour, companies also need to consider these changes in relation to contractors who live abroad. The Ministry of Labour explained that it is recommended to conclude civil law contracts when formalizing relations with such individuals (Letter of the Ministry of Labour No. 14-2/OOG-5755 dated 9 September 2022).
