Is registration required for employment?
What is registration?
As such, the notion of propiska was introduced in the USSR in the late 20-ies of the last century and abolished in 1993, as contrary to the citizen's right to freedom of movement and choice of residence, stipulated in the Constitution. But, in fact, registration was replaced with registration by place of residence or stay is permanent or temporary, a stamp which is in the passport. Temporary registration is confirmed by the evidence. To obtain a temporary registration at the place of stay you must do within 90 days from the time of arrival. It is your responsibility.
Therefore, if you do not have in this location a permanent registration, it is considered that you have no local residence. And, though the Russian laws do not discriminate on the basis of territorial or place of residence, some employers continue to violate them, indicating this requirement in the ad for employment.
What documents must submit a candidate for admission to work
Any citizen of the Russian Federation, regardless of the place of permanent or temporary registration, is obliged to submit only those documents that are stipulated in art. 65 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation:
- passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation or any other identity card;
- employment record, if this place of work is not his first;
- insurance policy of state pension insurance, if it was previously received;
- citizens liable for conscription must submit documents of military registration;
— documents on education and those that confirm skills and qualifications. Additional documents the employer is entitled to require when applying for a job only in some cases taking into account specificity of work, the requirement must be justified by relevant regulations.
Thus, a document certifying permanent residence or registration is not required for employment. According to article 64 TK the Russian Federation, its presence or absence should not be a cause of refusal to work. Direct or indirect violation of civil rights and freedoms are any requirements employers that are not related to business qualities of an employee. The employer has no right to deny you for lack of registration at the place of residence or worsen for this reason, the conditions of your work. Does not exist and regulations requiring employers to monitor the compliance by its employees the established rules of registration.
