In Chukotka, all employers will pay for their travel to the place of vacation in Russia every 2 year

Employees of organizations in the Far North will be paid once every two years for travel to the place of vacation in Russia at the expense of the employer. The corresponding amendments to Article 33 of the Federal Law "On State Guarantees and Compensations for Persons Working and Living in the Far North and Equated Areas" and Article 325 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation were approved by the Federation Council at the 350th meeting and approved by the President.

The document was submitted to the upper house of parliament for consideration by a member of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy Anna Otke, the press service of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug administration said.

As explained by the senator, the law is aimed at establishing the equality of the rights of employees of organizations, including extra-budgetary organizations located in the Far North and equivalent territories, to receive compensation payments for the fare and transportation of luggage to and from the place of vacation.

- Northerners who did not work in budget organizations often faced this problem. In fact, citizens engaged in small and medium-sized businesses, industrial companies, indigenous communities and other non-budgetary organizations were restricted in their right to rest (vacation). The new Federal Law for employers establishes the obligation to compensate for the cost of travel and baggage allowance to the place of vacation use and back within the Russian Federation to all persons working in organizations located in the Far North regions and similar areas, as well as their family members . The right to reimbursement of these expenses arises from the employee, at the same time as the right to receive annual paid leave for the first year of work in this organization, commented Anna Otke.

According to her, the influence of the new law on the situation in the labor relations of the inhabitants of the Far North will be under the control of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy and the Ministry of Labor.

We add that the draft of this law was developed by the Government of Russia in pursuance of the resolution of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation No. 9-П dated February 12, 2012.

As Anna Otke told, in 2010, a resident of Karelia appealed to the Constitutional Court. After the courts of first and second instances did not satisfy her claim, arguing that her employer did not belong to the budget sphere, the size and terms and conditions of compensation for the relevant expenses were not established in the local regulations adopted by him, and employment contract with the plaintiff.
