Exclusive: Bonkers firm lists marital status of female staff

A Ukrainian firm has published extremely personal details about its staff.

Law firms occasionally include lawyers' hobbies on their Meet the Team profiles in a fruitless attempt to humanise them, but shipping specialist Interlegal has gone several mad steps further and included their marital status. Visitors to Interlegal's website have also been able to learn, for reasons unknown but probably stalking, whether they have children and, if so, how many and of what sex. RollOnFriday picked through the KGB dossiers, sorry, profiles, to see who is still on the market, sorry, employed at the firm.

Karina's profile contains all the information her public has a right to know:




Irina has declined to specify for everyone in the world the sex of her children, the privacy nut:




Except for his name, Mehmet uses exactly this profile on Ashley Madison, where the 'foreign partner' note serves to clarify that his wife is frequently out of the country:




Sorry ladies, Yevgeny and his big collar and sophisticated tie pin are taken. You'll have to play airsoft ("a game in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with spherical non-metallic pellets launched via replica firearms") with someone else.




But Yuri Gagarin is available and he looks better than ever, forty years after returning from space and dying.




Strangely, most of the young ladies employed by the partnership are available and single. Apparently there was no tickbox for unmarried and attached.

Ilonaly Ilona:




Julia lied about her husband to get this job:




Kirin didn't, and with no-one biting she asked IT to add in her mobile number and spell out her email address.




Ukrainians, not always known for their tact:




The men are also invited to be judged. Although Michael's set-up is so rapidly sketched that it is left unclear whether he is married with a daughter or married to his daughter. He looks the sort:




Fittingly for a country adjacent to/in Putin's Russia, the men's hobbies are stridently macho. Nikolai's gone a bit far, though, and hunts dogs for fun:




Meanwhile, Vyachelsav Lebedev's family can't wait to hear his daily ponderings on soccer:




Eduard's is the only profile which does not include a marital status. His hobbies suggest he's doing just fine, though:




STOP PRESS
: Andrey studied under a wizard:



If you've seen a firm do something weird, write in. Here are some helpful examples.

Good work, other than the title - why single out female staff when it includes the marital status of the male staff?

If there's one thing both studying at the Department of Romance seem to have learnt it is not to marry.

Maybe Ms Agbash's marital/parental status has to do with her earning her degree within a Department of Romance.

I think it's more impressive that Yuri Gagarin works there. He's looking well - relativity in action, presumably

RoF being rather provocative by implying this only happens to the women at the firm!

If it's for both sexes, it's still a bit unusual but I'm not really sure I see the problem.

The National Law Academy of Ukraine - Yaroslav the Wise is actually named after an 11th century prince of Kiev. Still, why let history get in the way of a crap joke, eh?

Lollers at "hunting huskies"!

Seriously though, the marital status thing isn't really bonkers is it.

Comfortable flag? Perhaps if you want to snuggle up in it - otherwise maybe a "flag of convenience"?
