The Association of Internet Business Companies complained to the Federal Antitrust Service about HeadHunter’s “unreasonable price increases for services”. They ask the service to check the site for abuse of its position and warn that the increase in the cost of advertisements threatens to increase the prices of goods.

Online retailers complained to the Federal Antitrust Service about HeadHunter fees

Since March 2020, HeadHunter has increased the cost of posting a job at the standard rate in a package of 1000 ads from 85 to 340 rubles per ad. Several other services have also gone up in price multiple times, according to the complaint, which Kommersant has read.

The FAS is still considering the complaint, HeadHunter reported that they received no notification from the antitrust service about the receipt of the ACIT appeal.

Lawyers believe that the mere fact that prices rise is not enough to recognize the platform as infringing, it will be necessary to prove its redundancy.

In 2021, HeadHunter’s revenue grew by 92.8% to 15.96 billion rubles, while net profit increased by 191.3% to 5.49 billion rubles.
