MOSCOW, July 31. /Basereporter.com/. The Ministry proposes to bring the self-employed from the scope of labour legislation. The bill of the Ministry published on Tuesday on the portal of projects of normative legal acts.
“Proposed amendments to the Labour code of the Russian Federation in terms of elimination of activities of self-employed and employers – the physical persons not being individual entrepreneurs, from the subject of regulation of labour legislation. Currently the bill is under public discussion and is in the process of regulatory impact assessment”, – said Basereporter.com on Tuesday, the press service of the Ministry of labor.
The press service noted that today, in the framework of execution of orders of the President and the government of the Russian Federation on the legal status of self-employed citizens of the Federal bodies of Executive power prepares complex amendments to the legislation, which involves the Ministry of labor of Russia. “So, the Ministry of justice is preparing changes to the definition of the legal status of self-employed people, the Ministry of Finance is preparing amendments to simplify registration of this category of citizens, providing tax incentives, etc.,” said the Agency.
Given the complex nature of the problem, along with these changes, it is necessary to make amendments in the labour legislation and prepared a draft Federal law “On amendments to the Labour code of the Russian Federation” (concerning improvement of legal regulation of labour relations of some categories of workers), explained in the Ministry of labor.
The Ministry stressed that at present the activities of the individuals providing private services for the supervision and care of children and sick services, tutoring, cleaning and housekeeping etc., are subject to regulation by the labour legislation of the Russian Federation. However, as a rule this activity is carried out without proper registration relations, while in fact there is no proper control over observance of labour legislation in respect of this category of persons.
“This is because the employer can not actually bear duties, stipulated by the Labor code of the Russian Federation (conclusion in written form of the employment contract, registration of labour contract with a worker in the local authority at the place of residence in accordance with the registration), the payment of insurance premiums and other obligatory payments, registration and insurance certificate of the state pension insurance for persons employed for the first time)”, – concluded in the Ministry of labor.
