Title – Quota for the employment of disabled people in Russia: strategies for compliance.
Subject area – Human resource management.
Study level/applicability – The case might be used in teaching International Management or Russian society at a Master's level, including MBA.
Case overview – Quotas for the employment of disabled people exist in many countries, including Russia. Many companies in Russia, however, are “forced” to find “creative solutions” to avoid this quota. This attitude is caused not by the unwillingness of companies to support disabled people, but rather by their moral and technical unreadiness to do so. Using one example of a company providing freight services, the case illustrates this. The company is faced with additional challenges: it is a 100 percent subsidiary, dependant on its parent company in many respects – especially in financial matters.
