Russia: Regulator opens probe against job boards

Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service has filed antitrust cases against job boards HeadHunter, Superjob, and Rabota.ru.

The FAS said the terms of use for the three job boards’ services contain clauses banning the use of automated recruitment software when working with the firms. The FAS added that, “at the same time, these resources occupy a dominant position in the job search market on the Internet” and “dominate the market of information exchange between jobseekers, employers, and staffing agencies in the Internet.”

The watchdog also found that the firms block users if they use software of third party developers for automated recruitment.

FAS opened the case following a complaint from a developer of an automated recruitment tool and then concluded that the actions of the three recruitment firms may restrict access of businesses offering automated recruitment software to the market of information exchange between jobseekers, employers, and staffing agencies via the Internet.
