«As quarantine restrictions lessen and the season is coming, Ukrainian resort destinations will need specialists. According to Jooble, 38% of applicants for working and linear jobs are ready for labor migration within the country to work during the season», 

— Olena Kirilievnina, Chief of the Partner Relations Department at Jooble, says.

«Companies have many new people working for them during the season, and it is not always safe. When recruiting new people, it is essential to check information about them. With Opendatabot, an employer can automatically check potential employees’ criminal records, current lawsuits, debts, etc.», 

— Oleksii Ivankin, CEO of Opendatabot, comments.

To check the reputation and criminal record of a worker:
  1. Enter a worker’s full name
  2. In his/her profile, view the lawsuits where that person is involved
