Labor Regulations in Russia : An Overview (Inglês)

The recent World development report on jobs notes that government’s role should be to set conditions for private sector job creation, and remove obstacles to creating jobs with the highest development payoffs. Policies should also address imperfections in the labor market, such as inadequate or asymmetric information, uneven bargaining power, limited ability to enforce long-term commitments, and insufficient insurance against employment-related risks. The objective of this report is to identify key rigidities in labor legislation in Russia, and propose ways to enhance its flexibility while supporting social protection of workers. The study is based on a comparative analysis of the main indicators or parameters of the individual labor contract, as listed in labor legislation. Internationally-accepted main labor standards in related areas are referenced. In particular, the report is organized into six chapters. Chapter 1 presents the basic data on labor markets in Russia associated with labor regulations. Chapter 2 discusses essential elements of the employment contract as well as emerging forms of contractual relationships, with the focus on temporary employment and part-time employment contracts. Chapter 3 examines the establishment of the minimum wage, including setting the minimum wage, the level and differentiation of minimum wages. Chapter 4 presents the main rules and regulations regarding the termination of employment contracts for economic reasons. Chapter 5 presents a discussion on enforcement of labor laws in Russia. Chapter 6 discusses aspects of social dialogue in Russia.
