“We strongly recommend checking your business for the need to implement professional standards.”
On July 1, 2016, the provisions of Article 195.3 of the Labor Code entered into force, according to which employers are required to apply professional standards if the Labor Code, federal laws and other regulatory legal acts contain requirements for the qualifications that an employee needs to perform certain labor functions.
Professional standards are mandatory for implementation in any organization, regardless of the organizational and legal form. The organization's application of professional standards is regulated by legislation, as well as by internal policy, local regulations of the organization itself.
Examples of professional standards already adopted in Russia:
- an employee engaged in underground work;
- system administrator of information and communication systems;
- HR specialist;
- recruiting specialist;
Failure to comply with the requirements of the legislation on the application of professional standards entails the application of liability measures: a fine of up to 20,000 rubles or disqualification for a period of 1 to 3 years for officials, as well as a fine of up to 200,000 rubles for each case of violation - for legal entities.
Currently, there is no consensus in the professional environment about the need to apply professional standards, and most importantly, about the procedure for their implementation. In such a situation, we recommend that you turn to the help of professionals who will help you understand the intricacies of applying the new legislation directly to your business.
