Rostrud: Russians are twice as likely to contact the labor inspectorate

According to preliminary results of June, residents of Russia were twice as likely to apply to the labor inspectorate, compared with the same period last year. At the same time, in May there were 30% more requests than this June.

As they write "News", All in Rostrud filed about seven thousand calls through the service" online inspection. About 15 thousand more calls were received by the department by phones of the round-the-clock hotline. In May there were 55 thousand calls.

Most often, Russians asked for layoffs (32%). They were interested in illegal dismissals, the failure to issue a payroll or a work book. Another 30% turned to specialists for help on salary payments, the validity of deductions from earnings, delays, and salaries below the minimum wage. In addition, 10% of residents were interested in questions about coronavirus and pandemic-related problems: sick leave, suspension from work, registration at the labor exchange.

About 3% of applicants learned about changes in working conditions, employer responsibility (2%), hiring and working hours (everywhere 1%). Other issues amounted to at least 15% of requests. As Rostrud emphasizes, about 90% of the questions are not complaints, but consultations.

At the same time, the vice-rector of the Financial University under the Russian government, Alexander Safonov, believes that the appeals can hardly be called peaceful - most often it is precisely because of conflicts that employees seek advice. In any case, this indicates an increase in tension in the labor market.
