How to find and hire employees in Latvia
Discrimination laws in Latvia
Along with most modern countries, Latvia has a range of anti-discrimination laws covering employees and candidates for jobs. There are various protections in place, including a ban on discrimination by employers based on age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disabilities, religious beliefs, and more.
If you are seen to break Latvia’s discrimination laws, you could risk legal action, fines, and significant disruption to your expansion operation, so it is crucial that you understand the rules before hiring. Horizons’ Latvia experts offer comprehensive recruitment consultancy and outsourcing to ensure your business always understands and follows the rules appropriately.
