Alexander Nadmitov, the managing partner of Nadmitov, Ivanov & Partners Law Firm commented to RBC on the announcement made by the head of Aeroflot concerning possible imposition of prohibition of employment of resigned pilots during three years.

Aeroflot promises not to hire resigned pilots during three years

The head of Aeroflot Vitaly Saveliev at the meeting of shareholders announced a three year embargo for resigned specialists. Lawyers argue that this decision is inconsistent with labor law.

In recent times Around 100 pilots quit Aeroflot group (which includes Aeroflot, Russia, Pobeda and Avrora airline companies), in particular 20 pilots quit Aeroflot, 120 more quit its subsidiary company Russia.

During the last 2,5 years more than 300 Russian pilots quit for Asian airline companies, primarily for Chinese ones, and about 400 pilots are now in the process of employment.

Pilots are attracted by higher wages.

Lawyers consider this reason for denial of employment unlawful (Articles 3 and 64 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation).

The managing partner of Nadmitov, Ivanov & Partners Law Firm Alexander Nadmitov considers the intention of Aeroflot not to hire resigned pilots as violation of labor law as well. “This restriction falls under discrimination prohibited by Article 3 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation. Discrimination on the grounds not connected with professional characteristics of an employee is prohibited”, he informed RBC.
