Labor and Immigration relations governing the employment of all employees in the Republic of Azerbaijan are regulated by the Labor Code, the Migration Code and other relevant legislation.
Foreign employees who are employed by enterprises (subsidiaries), branches or representative offices operating in Azerbaijan are subject to Azerbaijani labor law, except for those working in branches or representative offices located in Azerbaijan under employment contracts concluded with the foreign state’s enterprise in that state.
Employment relations become effective, not following the signature of the employment agreement, but from the time of the registration of the employment agreement in an electronic database for maintaining records of employment agreements created by the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population. Under this rule, notification of all employment agreements, amendments to employment agreements and information on the termination of employment agreements must be submitted to the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population.
