On November 30, the State Duma adopted an updated version of the law “On Employment in the Russian Federation.” Innovations are the result of the work of the United Russia party and the Russian government.
Who will be affected by the updated law?

- assistance will be provided to young professionals who cannot find work.
According to Isaev, the updated law provides for a whole range of measures for career guidance and employment of young people, and also protects the rights of people with disabilities. The official also announced the protection of the rights of individual entrepreneurs and self-employed citizens.

Other initiatives that United Russia will introduce
