Engaging foreign citizens’ labor inevitably involves the employer in issuing the required package of approvals, adherence to the terms and procedure of notification of state structures, strict implementation of the immigration legislation rules. Breach of any of the duties of the employer while they are being performed entails substantial administrative penalties and failures in the organization performance.

To eliminate these risks we suggest you entrust treating all the matters involving the legalization of foreign citizens’ labour to the “UNION Group” professionals.

The way it works

Legalization of guest workers labor


  • Focus on core activities of the organization
  • Facilitating the work of Human Resources and Accounting departments
  • Optimization of expenses on documents issuing
  • Minimization of time required to issue documents
  • Reduced number of points of intersection with the public authorities
  • Guarantee of the fulfillment of all employer’s obligations


The price for CIS citizens is from 16 500 rub. per employee.

The price for visa citizens is from 29 500 rub. per employee.

Bus tour to Chernihiv (Russian–Ukrainian border) is 6 500 rub. per employee.

* - In common practice the expenses on documents issuing are fully or partially paid by the employee himself, this allows to reduce cost loading for the organization.


Outstaffing implies transfer of particular employees (departments, branches) to external organization but not some specific functions of enterprise. These employees are officially hired by member of “Union Group” organization and actually work at the original place and perform the same functions whereas all employer’s liabilities against them are performed by "Union Group". Outstaffing allows your organization to be relieved of responsibility for compliance with the labor, immigration and tax legislation against outstaffed employees.

The way it works

Staff recruitment and outstaffing


  • Distributed responsibility and risk minimization
  • Reduced number of interaction with the state authorities
  • Tax base reduction
  • Tax liabilities reduction
  • Improved staffing of key personnel
  • Facilitating the work of Human Resources and Accounting departments
  • Improved company image
  • Facilitated dealing with trade unions
  • VAT expenditure set-off (from 2,000 rub. per employee a month)


The price of service package is from 900 rub. per employee a month.

* - The price depends on the list of services in outstaffing package and on the number of employees.
