The subject of the thesis is outstaffing as the practice of using foreign labor in the Russian labor market.

The object of the thesis are employers who use outstaffing as a mechanism for using foreign labor.

During the research semi-structured interviews were used as the main method for collecting empirical data. As an additional analysis was selected the analysis of the company data and documentation related to settlements with outstaffing services.

Based on the analysis of interviews with employers and business leaders, it was possible to show that the main factor of using foreign labor through the outstaffing mechanism was not economic benefit. The main factor was a reduction in the risks associated with possible violation of labor and migration legislation.
