Foreign Employee in Uzbekistan
Foreign Workers in Uzbekistan
Companies with foreign employees in Uzbekistan must obtain a foreign labor license from the Agency on Foreign Labor Migration Issues (the "Agency"). A licensed company must also obtain a work permit (confirmation) from the Agency for each foreign employee. The Agency should issue a foreign labor license within 30 days from the date of submission of all required documents. The procedure for issuing work permits for foreign employees is similar to the procedure for obtaining foreign labor licenses. A foreign labor license and/or employee's work permit are valid for no more than one year. The fee for a foreign labor license is 10 times the minimum monthly wage. There is no fee for an employee's work permit. Foreigners working in representative offices are excluded from the foreign labor license and work permit requirements. But each foreigner working in a representative office must obtain an individual accreditation card from the Ministry for foreign economic relations, investments and trade
Upon the last day of the fixed-term contract the employer must provide employee’s dismissal no later than one week, otherwise the contract will be regarded as having been confirmed and the appointment made permanent. Employees are protected against instant dismissal, except in cases of drunkenness, theft and "immoral activity". Dismissal for other reasons, such as incompetence, must be preceded by a history of under-performance and a minimum of three reprimands. Therefore it is recommended that job descriptions be given to all staff, and that they be informed of the disciplinary procedures in force at the enterprise.
Points prohibited by the Labor Law. It is strictly prohibited all forms of discriminations: toward to women, different nationality, race, nationality, spoken language, social level, religion, age, and other personal features which are not connected with the professional activity. In case if a job prescription is chosen accordingly to the personal or physical conditions (for ladies, disable workers) it is obviously not the discrimination. Every person being discriminated is entitled for the moral and material compensation as per the Labor Code. It is strictly prohibited to force to work by implementing physical punishment and threaten with physical punishment. Not prohibited compulsory work at the military services, in case of an extraordinary internal situation and other situations as per the Law.
